Can I put synthetic oil in my 2012 Tacoma
Thanks so much for all the information you put out. I have a 2012 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab with a V6 auto. It has 36k miles. Bought new. I change my own oil and always use Castrol and factory filter. The owners manual says to use conventional oil. I can no longer find the weight required in conventional, only synthetic blend or pure synthetic. Is there any long term problem using the blend? Since I put little mileage on it, I change the oil/filter every 6 months. Thanks again!
As long as it's the right rating, see no reason it wouldn't work for you. Looks like the owners manual calls for 5W30.
Synthetic is fine. As long as the oil (and brand of oil) meets the viscosity and specifications you can use it.
Should be good, although you should still be able to find 5W30 in conventional.
