finally found the 5w-20 TSB...

i was wondering if anyone out there has started using the 20 weight oil, and whether any benefits have arisen?? a few others on different boards have stated decent increases in mpg. unfortunately, i've purchased enough amsoil ASL 5w-30 to last me 2 oil changes, but i'm thinking of switching to their 0w-20 on both my sienna (3MZ) and yaris (1NZ), since both their engines are clearly on the list. should be good timing since gas will probably be around 4 bucks/gallon when that time comes around...

EDIT: I know BlackYaris is running the 5W-20 water oil that TSB suggests. I make typos too.

(2 post before me....) Read the TSB where it shows/says at the bottom, "oil recommended for these engines". If Your engine code falls in the list, then I do not see a problem using the 0-20 from what I understand after reading static808 TSB.
I will look at my "code" and if it is in the list I will try the 0-20 weight on my next oil change.
static808, I'm curious on the warranty part. There is nothing there. Does this mean NO WARRANTY if you use/change over to the 0-20??
Also, how did you obtain this TSB; something You found online; work for TOYOTA???

thnx.,

our engine code is fall into 5w-20, but if someone else recommended 0w-20 then i guess we can use it, but as far as i see is our engine code is in 5w-20 list.

What?! you didnt get the e-paper manual? all you have to do is take your manual to the dealership and get the new auto updating manual that keeps up with toyota's changes on-the-fly

i actually found this on my other board, siennaclub.org. people over there are just as torn as people over here regarding switching over or not. im giving it a shot since we all could use the extra mpg, and i just called toyota's customer experience line, and they stated that as long as our engine is listed in the tsb, our warranties will be covered as usual, should anything happen because of the use of 20 weight oil.

with regards to using 0w-20, instead of 5w-20, amsoil only carries an 0w-20, and they state that it is intended to replace conventional 5w-20 as well. they also mention how honda, toyota and gm are starting to recommend using 20 weight oil. its just like their series 2000 0w-30 oil; it is intended to replace 5w-30 oil also. same viscosity characteristics as the 5w's, just better cold weather start-up. an 0w designation also simply means a synthetic formula, since i cant find a conventional-dino 0w oil. its odd how this tsb actually "unofficially" has toyota endorsing synthetic oil use. i dont want to start another convetional vs synthetic debate, but i just wanted to post this thread out there for people who had heard of this tsb but actually could never find it. now we can all start getting better mpg without wondering whether using this weight oil will adversely affect our engines... hope this helps!

TSB's are the most current info for our car supplied by toyota. sometimes the manufacturer may find something that is better for or car or fixes a common problem in our car. things are constantly updated due to common customer complaints etc. the TSB's are the most up to date information so they superceed any info in our owners manuals. the techs use them everyday to repair and service our cars. thus any info in the owners manual can be updated at any time. dealerships usually make the updates automatically when you bring your car in for service. sometimes you have to ask though...

there is no warranty info b/c its only updating the grade of oil used during an oil change at the dealership. oil changes are not warranteed. if it were say a defective radio unit. then you would see warrantee information explaining that a new unit is under warrantee etc. hope this helps explain things a little.
