Best place, online or other, to buy Toyota Motor Oil and filters?

What is the best place (pricing) to buy Toyota Syn 0w-20 oil and OEM filters... Local dealer clipped me for $9.50 per quart...and over $9 for a filter element. Hoping to find a better deal for next time.

Thanks

It has been discussed before. There are vendors here on the forums that are from Toyota dealerships and eBay is another site that dealerships sell stuff. I've purchased OEM v6 filters for $38 for 10 ($3.80 a piece). There is no reason why you should get OEM oil. Just go to Walmart and buy Mobil1. They sell 5qt jugs for $20 or so. Done.

Mobil 1 doesn't package 0W-20 in 5-quart jugs, so you have to buy it individually. And at $6.37/qt, Mobil 1 isn't all that cheap. The OEM Toyota 0W-20 oil is a superior product over Mobil 1, and for the same price at most dealers, you might as well buy the Toyota oil if you're there to buy the filter anyway. It's unfortunate that this dealer is charging so much for it.

The Toyota oil has much more molybdenum in it than Mobil 1, which is a rather expensive anti-wear additive that most factory fills have. In addition, it has an excellent (very high) viscosity index, demonstrating very good performance over a wide variety of temperatures.

I was able to buy Toyota 0W-20 at my dealer for under $6.00 per quart!! Great deal! I am not sure if it was on sale or what, but I walked out with 10 quarts.

Its all the same...just rebadged. The oil they use at dealerships for those bringing it in for service is recycled oil.

Anything from dealership is over inflated in price and a rip off. Thats like telling customers that if they don't take it to a dealership or use OEM products that it voids warranty. Bull donkey doo!

I've been using non-OEM oil and filters on all my cars and they last 15+ years. I've only been using OEM oil filters as I get it cheap. My dad use to get FRAM but its cheaper to buy OEM in bulk.

Toyota's 0W-20 oil you buy over the counter in quarts is not the same as Mobil 1 0W-20 you buy over the counter. What the Toyota dealer might SERVICE a vehicle with, as you say, can be anything. My dealer uses Quaker State Ultimate Durability 0W-20.

Here's some good information for you:

http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums...57#Post1673357

That's a VOA (Virgin Oil Analysis) of the Toyota 0W-20. You can see that molybdenum ("moly") is super high, at over 800ppm. Most other oils have 50-200ppm of moly.

And here is a VOA of Mobil 1 0W-20:

http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums...=785854&page=1

You can see that it's clearly not the same oil. Mobil 1 has less than 100ppm of moly.

To be sure, moly is not the only measure of a good oil. The point here being, most people believe that the Toyota 0W-20 bottled oil is the same as anything else, and it's clearly not the same. If your dealer has it priced competitively with other synthetics-by-the-quart (in the $6.50 range for 0W-20), it's actually a fairly good value, given its excellent performance characteristics.

Absolutely correct!
Toyota oil is made by Mobil but formulated for Toyota with more moly.
Toyota 0w20 and Honda 0w20 have a load of Moly in their oil.Great stuff.
I buy Toyota 0w20 from a Toyota dealer on Ebay by the case and the cost per qt with shipping is just under $6.70.Well worth it!

I expect more informed opinions from a mod in a major national automotive forum. It IS NOT all the same when it comes to motor oil as pointed out by the last couple of posters. I've been working at dealers for the last 30 years and I don't know of anyone using recycled oil. Thats an old wives tale. The vast majority of Toyota dealers are on the GTMO (Genuine Toyota Motor Oil) program which uses specially formulated Exxon-Mobil bulk oil, Mobil1 and the new 0W-20. Oh, and BTW, our dealership charges less for basic maintenance than Jiffy Lube and we don't try to sell you every flush known to man every time you come in like they do. Things have changed quite a bit at the dealership level in the last couple of years.

BTW: Mobil 1 DOES package the 0w-20 in 5 qt. jugs now. Saw them at Walmart last week.

Being a mod on a major national automotive forum has nothing to do with our opinions. We don't get paid nor are we employed. What we say is of our own opinion and experience.

Forgot to mention earlier that Walmart actually does use recycled oil in bulk form....when I worked there in the Auto department we had to go to training a few times and our regional manager mentioned it a couple of times.

Thanks for that info; that's awesome news. They always had the 0W-30 in the large jugs, but they never bottled the 0W-20 that way. I don't know why...not enough demand for it at the time I guess. Glad to see they've started doing that. That makes the Mobil 1 0W-20 product a better value.
