My buddy has a 2007 tacoma V6 prerunner, completely stock.
He is at 3000 miles on the odometer. He wants to switch to Amsoil synthetic motor oil. Is it best to use a cheaper synthetic first for a few thousand miles to get rid of the original oil and then go to amsoil? Or just go right to amsoil.
Also, what weight should he use? 0w-30, 5w-30, 10w-30? Climate is warm, he lives in Southern california.
Last question, I have a 03 tacoma supercharged and I am using 0w-30 amsoil, should I stick with it or go to 5w-30?

Thanks in advance.

Your buddy can change to a synthetic whenever he wants. If he plans on following the every 15k miles thing with that oil, I would do a cheaper syn first, but that is my own opinion. 5w-30 is fine for down here also. For both trucks ..

I thought people loved Amsoil, for its quality and you only have to change it twice a year at most.
yeah, it is great stuff. I just think that when you get something like that, you should do the transition change, like you mentioned. I use mobil 1 extended. It says you can change it every 15k, but I don't feel comfortable waiting that long. Especially when I wheel my truck alot. I do it every 7k just to feel good, and to get under my truck, and have my alone time ;)
