    Secondary Air Filter removal. More to come hopefully.
    Working for Valvoline I have been to the new products lab, and product testing lab. The tests they put the oil through is something else. It's very interesting to see. As far as Mobil 1, Castrol Syntec, etc, of course I am going to be a little partial. I think they all would make the cut for fully protecting our Tacoma's. Some people swear by their brand, which is fine. IMO you can't really go wrong with Valvoline Synpower, Mobil 1, etc. There all top tier products, whose companies spend a lot of money in R&D, which leads to producing a god product.

    Last I checked, Wal-MArt does sell the 5- gallon jugs. Most companies sell product in the 5 gallon jugs now. SOme do it periodically as specials, but now most companies do it full-time.

    I'd say it's just as good as the other big name synthetics.

    ^I've used PP for years. I haven't done an oil study on the Tacoma but it tested very well in my Altima.

    I like AMSoil. Mobil1 and Purplepower are almost as good. Remember this stuff is goin in your engine so if you want it to last get something thats good. You pay for what you get.

    ^Yes, true, you DO pay for what you get. In other words, I can change my oil 2-3 times on what Amsoil costs, not to mention I don't believe in extended OCI's.
