    I have a lot of Mobil 1 Synthetis 5W-30 which I use in my Tacoma (6 cyl.). I also have a 2005 Honda Accord V6.....which calls for 5W-20 oil. Do you think it would hurt to use the 5W-30 in the Accord? Hate to load up on two different oils?

    No, I don't. I went from dyno oil in my 98 (R.I.P) to Amsoil (0w-30) and only noticed improvements. In particular, motor ran smoother and quieter. But that may be an apple to oranges comparison.
