    Probably not the best thread for that question. There are tons of subjective--and some objective--reviews of Mobil 1 all over TW. If you search Mobil 1, there are tons of threads. Here is one of the more recent posts that has quantitive testing:

    They changed it somewhere around 2016, even the 4runners that still have the 4.0 now use 0w-20 synthetic

    I'm pretty sure 0w20 weight oil doesn't exist as conventional, only 'full' or 100% synthetic.

    Im getting ready to do my first service at 15k miles. 5k and 10k were both done at my local dealer. I wanted to see what the consensus is on fluids. Right now I am leaning towards
    1. Mobil 1 0w-20 with OEM filter for engine oil
    2. OEM ATF WS for transmission drain and fill. I know there seems to be a lot of people on here that don't like the Toyota WS but I don't want to mix fluids and don't really want to go through the trouble of a flush.
    3. Mobil 1 75w-90 in both diffs or redline 75w-85?
    4. Not going to do T-case until much later but when I do is Ravenol the way to go if I don't want to pay Toyota prices for the OEM stuff?

    Thanks

    Sorry, forgot that my profile says 2004. That was my first Tacoma which I sold in June of 2018, only had 75k miles on it FWIW. Anyhow, I now have a 2018 TRD OR. Will try to figure out how to change that.

    1. I wouldn't worry about engine oil until 20k if it was changed at 10k.

    2. Stick to WS unless you plan on flushing out all the WS

    3. I used redline, its listed as a direct replacement for Toyota liquid gold on redlines website

    4. I used redline for this also. Don't remember exactly which one, but they list it as a replacement for toyota liquid gold

    I just loaded mine into my work truck to return tomorrow. Too risky to ignore.

    Anyone know if you need an additive for the rear diff fluid? Not seeing anything on the list but figured I’d double check to be safe as a buddy mentioned It may be needed for the A-LSD. I’ve got a 2017 TRD sport for context.
