good deal, I will be very interested to see in 6 months how the Amsoil oil analysis turns out if an independent lab states 10K no problems between oil changes or not. Everyone I talk to states Amsoil is the best hands down and no problems going even above 10K intervals on oil changes, but we will see. I use Amsoil ONLY for my ATV taking 2 1/2 qts. and my Honda cycle taking 3.9 qts. since I only change oil on each of these at most once per year and with only putting on about 500 miles tops on my ATV, if that, the local Amsoil distributor states I am throwing money out the door and 2-3 years no problems on same Amsoil oil, but I worry about the oil filter paper elements lasting much more than 1 year. I like Amsoil and think it is great oil personally, but at 8-9 bucks per qt. with prices going up annually it seems, they are almost pricing themselves out of the market if you ask me.

I have had my truck for a year and only changed the oil 2x. I use AMSOIL as well, 5/20 every 5,000 miles. No issues so far. Won't use any other oil, either.

At first, they stated synthetic oil on 5.7L is 10K oil changes, now they say this which proves the schedule maint. guide on 2012 tundras is still every 5K:

Dear Mr. K...;

Thank you for your patience.

We have confirmed that the Flex Fuel Tundra and Sequoia should adhere to a 5,000-mile interval for oil changes (2,500 miles if using flex fuel more than half the time), though the vehicle uses synthetic oil. Our resources indicate that the ToyotaCare complimentary maintenance program will cover the cost of five synthetic oil changes.

If we may be of further assistance, please contact us via email or by calling 800-331-4331. We are available from 5 AM to 6 PM, Pacific Time, Monday through Friday, and from 7 AM to 4 PM Saturday.

We have documented your comments at our National Headquarters.

Dear Mr. K...;

Upon further review of the Scheduled Maintenance Guide (SMG), we recognize what you are calling attention to. While the default oil change interval for all engines using synthetic oil is 10,000 miles, the SMG refers back to a 5,000 mile interval if not using flex fuel more than half the operating time. What remains unclear is that the SMG does not appear to acknowledge or mention the use of synthetic oil.

We are making efforts to further research this. However, as it stands, we would be in a position to concur with the SMG as printed, following either a 5,000-mile or 2,500-mile interval.

If we may be of further assistance, please contact us via email or by calling 800-331-4331. We are available from 5 AM to 6 PM, Pacific Time, Monday through Friday, and from 7 AM to 4 PM Saturday.

We have documented your comments at our National Headquarters.

Re: Oil Change

I am a user over at Bobistheoilguy and I cannot recommend enough for for you guys to over there and read the used oil analysis pages. One of the newest favorites is Quaker State Ultimate Durability or QSUD. It is a full synthetic and I get it at WMart for $21 for a 5qt jug. I have been running it in place of Mobil 1 and I cannot tell a difference.

resurrecting old threads? Welp...you can certainly run the toyota oem filter longer than 8k miles. I just posted my uoa and it handled 10k miles no prob. pushing further. but that's not on M1 oil.
