    I use synthetic for the added protection because I drive my truck hard. Either one will work fine though.

    ^^^^^^^^^this is good advice. Most important is the weight and keeping up with oil changes.

    Mobil 1 0W-20 with KN filter here. Have always done 3,000 mile oil changes in past. Think I'll go 5,000 intervals now with the Tacoma.

    Toyota recommends 3rd gen Tacoma oil be change at 10k with synthetic... But it’s hard to let it go that long when you’re use to 3k and 5k intervals. I changed the oil on my 2017 at 5k Miles but that’s bcause it was at 1 year. I only drive it about 5k Miles a year so I’ll be changing it every 5k Miles or 1 year. I’ll probably use the OEM filter and mobil1 synthetic 0w20 once my 2year free services are up.

    Before I purchased the Tacoma I was doing some research on the maintenance. Raised my eyebrows a bit when I read 10K intervals on the oil. My boss lets the company suburban run down to about 5% oil life which totals about 16K miles before he gets the oil changed. I figure if the engine goes to crap while I'm driving.....I'm on the time-clock so works for me! LOL
