    Have any of you guys ever run Castrol Syntec 0W-30 oil a.k.a "German Castrol" in their truck. specially in a 2nd generation 4 cylinder? How was it like? I have bought some to try and before I actually put it in my truck which calls out 0W-20 or 5W-20 wanted to get some feedback from Tacoma drivers. On "Bob is the oil guy" forum, everybody is singing its praises. sounds like it is very good stuff.

    Its pretty good stuff but its a pretty good leap for a engine thats speced for 20W oil. GC is pretty close to a 40W. I may use it in my 3.4L. Bob is the oil guy has tons of information. Been a member there for alittle while now.

    My 07 manual calls for either 5w-20 or 0w-20 but the oil fill cap says 5w-30. I wonder what the deal here is? Anyone else seen this........
