For those who are interested, I wanted to pass along my fuel mileage experience since switching to Amsoil Signature 0w20. (pic attached)

During my regular 35 minute commute to work (mostly country roads at 80kms/h) my gas consumption has improved from 7.8L/100kms (30mpg) to 6.1L/100kms (35.8mpg) representing just over a 15% fuel savings. These numbers have been consistent over several months with tires inflated to 35psi, and nothing about my commute has changed.

I have no affiliation with Amsoil and I really don't care what oil you choose to run. But these results were certainly eye-opening, especially considering gas prices right now.

I chose the Signature line 0w20 rather than Amsoil's OEM spec 0w16 just out of personal preference. (No need to go there.) I made the change after getting some great results using Amsoil in my Suzuki GSX-S1000F. My Camry is a 2020 SE 4 banger.... best vehicle I have every owned.

Happy motoring folks!

Temperature is a huge factor, and winter vs summer blend fuel is a notable factor. I would believe either of these have a bigger impact on fuel economy than the choice of oil.

This is mine on Mobil 1. It's a 2022 AWD SE.

My 2020 (Canadian) Camry SE, 2.5 I4 has almost 38 000 kms, and has oil changes every 8 000 kms by selling Toyota dealer...their invoices show 0W20 Toyota oil. On my work commute of 80 kms round trip and being driven gently, it regularly achieves less than 6L/100 km. Overall fuel economy is showing 5.8L/100 km since new.

No bragging.....just stating these cars deliver excellent fuel economy in the right conditions....steady highway speeds, no HVAC running, warm temperature etc.

Any quality oil that limits friction as well as dissipating heat quickly is the common ground vs. any specific brand.
They are effeceint engines no matter what way ya slice em. :cool:

I think oil is a smaller lever. I do 45 mpg all the time in my 2018 LE Camry. I am a very feather foot driver though. I enjoy most drives, the journey matters more than my destination :p
