The moly is a low friction lubricant - it bonds with the metal parts and allows them to 'slide' on the moly, vs. direct contact.Are these high moly oils important for engine longevity or is their sole purpose to increase fuel economy? The reason I ask is I'm debating whether to use the high moly Toyota 0W-20 or low moly Mobil 1 5W-30 in my new 4 cylinder 2015 Camry.

Which synthetic oil should I buy?
Do you change your own oil or take it to the shop?
Where?syn is typically on sale for $12-15 for a 5qt jug, syn-blends for $5-10 for 5qt/jugs
Not saying it's a bad idea, but definitely not a requirement for Toyota.Use Toyota filters during warranty period if factory still applies. Was told that was the only requirement for my truck and it eliminates any future excuses if a fail occurs.

Could be, but that's what the only thing I was told was needed to maintain the warranty. Didn't need to bring it in for any other warranty work. I bought a case at a time, so no big deal. Wasn't much more than the cheap ass Fram filters which I would never use.
This month, Kmart...Where?
I buy my oil at wal-mart - can't say I've seen syn less than $23 - definitely not $12-15.
I typically use motorcraft 5W20 for $18, but even Supertech is $11.44 after rollback, which is a lot more than $5-10.
