    I'm with ya. I rarely buy oil on demand for my own vehicles. It's almost always something that I've bought on sale and/or with a rebate then stashed away until needed. And yes....these 1GR's don't much care what's in them. 0/20 to 10/40....conventional, blend or synthetic. They just happily hum along.

    Now I do buy oil on demand when I change the oil for the many friends and neighbor's vehicles I wrench on. And unless they provide the oil or request something specific, they're getting the Warren produced Meijer house brand and an Ultra filter. Never an issue and they're always happy to get a synthetic OC and a quality filter for $25.

    As far as "smoothness" and "quietness"....I've found M1 Truck and SUV and Valvoline Full Synthetic to be good. The Valvoline is just mid-pack as far as viscosity....something like 10.8 @ 100° C. But it runs quiet. The M1 T&S is heavy @ 11.7....and that probably explains why it's quiet. As I close in on 100k miles I will probably jump to M1 HM. It's additive pack still seems robust and at 11.9 @ 100° C it's damn near a light 40. It's performed great in my daughter's Yaris.

    And the BITOG comment was a complement. :thumbsup:

    Just wanted to show off my new crossbars and roof rack, because who doesn’t get super pumped up and stare for 3 hours when a new accessory is put on their taco?

    up next are tires. Not sure if they’ll be BFGs or Discover AT3s :notsure:

    Morning all!

    Final update on Rosie. Took her back to the shop that did the work and they pulled out a book copy on the specs for all the fluids my 2008 uses. It shows what @Tacoma Mike stated for fluid and additive amounts. Their computer shows 1.5oz of additive, book shows a range, 4-8oz. They filled it up, 2oz at a time, and drove until it stopped making noise. It’s got 7.5oz in there now.

    Now onto the in cabin power and rear brakes.

    @Sig45

    Am I dreaming or do you have some extra backup lighting? Something that replaced your license plate light?

    I might be thinking of someone or something else.

    You would be correct. Upgraded to LED market/plate lights. Let me find the post.
