Did you notice any oil loss on the dipstick after changing the oil?I used supertech in my 2019 tundra and my 2019 Camry XSE. Just got a 2020 Tundra 2 days ago and will use Supertech in it as well. Good oil and it's not expensive. Call it cheap good oil.

I owned my last two cars for 11 years each. During that time I lived in Texas and other warm climates in the South, and have never seen any loss of oil in-between oil changes (based on dipstick readings). I generally used Mobil 1 5W-30 (the recommended viscosity for the two cars I owned).You live in Texas. In the summer it can be quite hot. Losing some oil would be a given.
Wow, is that the price? 10 quarts for $25? I've seen the Amazon brand (same mfg.) tested against some top brands on Youtube's Project Farm channel and it did really well.According to these two sites it's Warren Distribution Inc., so the oil is good
You are right, Amazon Basics synthetic is $23.Wow, is that the price? 10 quarts for $25? I've seen the Amazon brand (same mfg.) tested against some top brands on Youtube's Project Farm channel and it did really well.
Unfortunately Amazon has been raising the price on their oil so the 5 quart that was $17 is now about $23.
If this is the price, I'm going to Costco!
OK, how about an oil analysis comparing fresh vs used 5W20 (I couldn't find one on 5W30)?You are right, Amazon Basics synthetic is $23.
But you are wrong about the tests, because the tests run in that video are completely bogus and irrelevant to oil quality. I explained why in another thread (about that specific video).
A UOA was never designed to determine engine wear, and looking at metals in the oil it is a very poor way to make any conclusions about that subject. There are all kinds of reasons why one used motor oil would have more metals than another, having nothing to do with the ability of an oil to cause or reduce friction between metal parts in the engine. For example, some motor oils hold microscopic contaminants in suspension much better than other oils (which is usually considered to be good), resulting in erroneous conclusions on BITOG about engine wear between one motor oil vis-a-vis another.OK, how about an oil analysis comparing fresh vs used 5W20 (I couldn't find one on 5W30)?
