    I just purchased a 2009 Double Cab Long Bed and noticed that the
    oil spec is for 5w-30 SL. Does anyone know who makes the Toyota Oil ??
    Is it Synthetic ?? Any advantages to using it over say Penzoil Platinum ??
    My plan is to dump the factory fill at 1500 Miles and go to PP.
    What do you guys think ??:confused:
