I am not sure if any of these videos have been posted, but a youtuber compared all major brands of motor oil, and found Amsoil and Pennzoil to be better than Mobil 1. I have been using Mobil 1 for decades, but will probably be switching.

Here is the link to the last video in his series.

There are several videos before the one I have posted, comparing various brands of oil, Mobil 1, Amazon Basic, Lucas, etc. They are worth a watch.

This was cool. Thanks for posting.

My favorite part was how Amazon Brand Oil performed better overall than Mobil 1.

The Mobil 1 fanboi's are going to freak

I can already hear the excuses now.

Above info is all correct. Exxon / Mobil does make Toyota oil HOWEVER it is completely different than their off the shelf 0-20 It's a specific formulation made exclusively for Toyota. IMO, there is a reason for that. I am 2K miles away from my normal 5K mile oil change. I have used Toyota oil, Mobil 1 oil, Valvoline oil. The engine ran quietest with the Toyota oil so that's what I plan to use for the rest of the time I own this truck, which will be quite a while. Same goes for my 2019 Highlander, It'll get Toyota oil and OEM filters.
