Same here. It's good to know that our engines can handle oil changes at longer intervals.
I will still try to do it at around 5k miles but at least now I won't freakout if I go over that mark without oil changes. There's plenty of cushion there.
Thanks rockZ!

My UOA @ 25,000 miles (5,000 mile interval) performed by the dealership using Factory grade Toyota oil 5W/20. I suppose I'll stick with the factory oil until my Toyota Care service agreement expires. Nice having some peace of mind

BDT --

I'm a little confused Your last reported UOA @ 4,794 miles was with Mobil 1 5W/20. Your first post stated that you were going to sample the Mobil 1 oil, change the filter and top off at the next 5,000 mile interval (10K miles total). When did you change to Amsoil SS? What made you change from running Mobil 1 to Amsoil SS over the last 5,000 miles?

I also want to send props to BDT and fosterelli...this is a great thread. I much prefer evidence based data over hype and/or branding. For those of you running factory Genuine Toyota 5W/20 (like me), you should be good for 5,000 miles between changes. My understanding of synthetics is to extend the miles between complete oil changes (hence, saving money while protecting the motor from excessive wear). My TBN @ 5,000 miles was 1.2. Even though my wear accumulation was normal, I had very little additive left in my oil (I did some mild towing during this interval). Based on this preliminary testing, I have yet to see any overwhelming evidence for using synthetics @ 5,000 intervals. YMMV...literally

Thanks, brother. I missed that part of the thread

Like many others, I will be very interested in your next UOA, this time using Amsol SS. I never gave much thought to motor oil before reading about UOA on TT. As a side note, you should have seen the look on the service writer's face when I asked him to save a sample of my used oil He was cool with it but obviously had never been asked before to save a sample of used motor oil by a customer.

To all TT members reading this thread, email Blackstone and request your sample kits now! It's only $35 for a UOA with TBN. Knowing that my TBN was only 1.2 @ 5,000 miles is important information, especially since I want to keep my truck for another decade or longer. I'll probably switch to one of the synthetics once my Toyota Care service agreement expires.

The reason for uoa is for YOUR engine. Folks shouldn't rely on the fact that someone else with the same engine can get X number of miles out of their oil. They may have the same engine, but it's not the same engine.

Huh? Well Toyota makes the R&D on the same engine and makes the recommendation for that same engine used on 5.7L Tundra.
I would think if we both have the same healthy stock 5.7L engine from the factory, ran under similar condition, using the same oil will give the same result. I doubt if they test each individual engine and rate them as such; this one change oil at 3K, this at 5K, this at 7K.

So you're telling me that each engine that they roll off the assembly line has the EXACT same tolerances?

No engines has the same exact tolerances but they all must pass within acceptable specs (+/-). The difference I believe would be very small.

My point! That could be the difference between 5k and 7k on your changes.

The point I'm trying to make is that people should rely on their own UOAs, not what someone else is getting. There's too many variables to rely on someone else's - tolerances, driving habits, climate, how many miles on the engine, mods, etc etc.

But hey, if people want to think they can get 10k miles out of their oil because someone else can get 10k miles, go for it. Just at least send in a UOA to confirm your guess.

You should just give me your supercharger that way your engine will be less harsh on your oil and your foot won't be into the throttle as much extending your oil's life. That will be my contribution to your UOA.
