    All new Tacoma's have computer simulated limited slip, that stuff is not needed.

    No he doesn't. That hasn't been needed since 2008. 2005-2008 were the only years of the second gen with a mechanical LSD in which you need the additive.

    Anything newer than that has an open diff, and the truck uses the brakes to simulate an LSD

    This explains why I did not hallucinate after pressing "Auto LSD".

    I use Lucas Dino 85w-140. ECGS recommends that every diff run it. Heavier weight provides added lubrication.
