i have seen similar comments. i have an email out to Toyota Technical Support asking 1)what is the factory fill--viscosity and synthetic, blend, or conventional and 2)who makes it. i will post their response as soon as i get it.
its ENEOS (nippon oil), btw. i believe this is what gets branded as toyota oil here in the states:
i found this email response this morning on a greenhybrid.com forum, supposedly from Toyota, which, if true, would confirm synthetic 0w20 from the factory. semantics, though. some people will call a blend synthetic even though its not fully synthetic, so im still not sure if its a blend or not.
The following Toyota vehicles are filled from the factory with 0W-20 oil, synthetic oil.
Camry 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine
Camry Hybrid 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine
Corolla 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine
