Nothing wrong with royal purple. We did dyno pulls with it in a nascar 358 cu in busch north engine years ago. Its worth a few hp more over other oils. Probably won't make much difference in a stock toyota engine, only that its a bit overkill.Back when I was into restoring Triumph sportscars, I had a constant oil change along with exterior lubrication. I'm here all week, try the veal. In all seriousness, I use one of three oils, Royal Purple, Mobil 1, and Liqui Moly.
The Liqui Moly is expensive, but it goes into the BMW, which is changed once a year or 10k miles, whichever comes first. It always comes out looking nearly as fresh as the new going in. Oil consumption is less than half of a liter between changes.
Mobil 1 is in the Taco right now. I had the shop that replaced my tires to do an oil change as I didn't know what was in there. I'll use Mobil 1 if I can't get Royal Purple, Plus, Mobil 1 is pretty good, and is cheap. Mobil 1 is changed every 5k miles or 1 year, whichever comes first. I have used Mobil 1 since 1984.
Royal Purple is my go-to oil. I have used it in everything I have owned, except the BMW. It isn't a cheap oil, but as synthetics go, it isn't expensive, either. I prefer RP to Mobil 1. I'll change this every 7.5k miles or 1 year, whichever comes first. This is used in my Supra, as well as all other vehicles I have had since 1990. I'll probably switch to this in the Taco when I change the oil at 260k.
I use toyota filter's in my tractor. Actually mobil, and k&n filters are very good, if not better. They are all I used in my tundra.
You gotta get yourself a filter wrench. Those metal ones that slip around filter with a handle work best.i have to figure out HOW to get that oil filter off my rig now that i have better access to it with the plate removed and almost lower hose off out the way
its a bit more than hand tight on there from Maine but i lack any strength in getting at it without a tool
i have NOT ever removed that filter on my own truck LMAO
and i see why now that its the hugest of pains without the truck sufficiently elevated for leverage
