    I have switched to a 0W-30 Major Brand Top Tier 100% Fully all Synthetic Oil for better fuel economy,quicker oil lubrication at start up, more piston ,Ring, and Piston Skirt, and lifters and cam lobes lubrication and protection. Lubricates tighter tollerences . I checked with all as Mobil1,AMSOIL,Castrol,and a few others on my 2013 4.0 V6 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner DCLB A.T. and all say it is safe and better to use than 5W-30 and 10W-30 Synthetics Oils ! Quicker cold start and faster lube in hot enviroments. Try it out and check with Oil Manufacturers also!

    I use synthetic royal purple 5w-30 high mileage (since my truck has almost 200k) and I get my oil filters from the dealership. I personally thinks that's the best oil for your truck.

    Using AMSOIL Signature Series 0W-30 100% Full Synthetic, change with a new filter every 10,000 -15,000 miles !

    Yeah sometimes it's quadruple baked. The whole dry start is funny to me though. Engines would be blowing up left and right if there was an issue under normal circumstances.

    Immediately after using Royal Purple, I noticed a drop in the rpm gauge. Normal rpm is around 3500 before R.Purple and it's now maintaining around 2500. The ride does seem and feel smoother. I'm no mechanic guru and a bit iffy about the situation. Hope I didn't mess anything up.

    There should not be an RPM drop. I don't see 3500 at 80.

    Twas a guess, i dont see 3500 in top gear often.

    Sounds like I got something to worry about. 3500 rpm is roughly about 85-90ish on a 40 mile commute. I tend to have a bit of a lead foot from time to time. But there's definitely a drop in rpm and that's from Mobile 1 to Royal Purple. Guess I have researching to do when I return from Japan.

    If you have a lead foot you may not be letting the converter lock up.
