    It seams like OEM is loved by many on the Mud for the 80.
    Why not Toyota Oil?
    Show your love for OEM and use the Toyota Oil :flipoff2:

    Why? To pay $2-3 a quart for mineral oil? If you want to run mineral oil, save the money and get Chevron Delo, Pennzoil, or any other good mineral oil for $1.29 a quart. If you only want to spend $3.00 quart for synthetic, get the Shell Rotella Group III Synthetic for $12.98 a gallon at walmart.

    Bottom Line, we don't buy oil at the dealer for the same reason that we don't buy tires from the dealer, way to much money for what you get.

    When I asked the parts guy some years ago who makes their oil, he said it was made by Pennzoil. This was when Pennspoil was bad.
    Now that Pennzoil and QuakerState merged, are they using the same oil?
    If so and you want to reward Pennspoil, then you could buy the cheaper of the two.

    Mobile has been the oil vendor for Toyota since Toyota began the oil program.
