    5W50 is very heavy oil not meant for your ride. Try 5W40 or 5W30. A friend uses Shell Ultra in his corolla 1.8l 2015.

    go for taglon 5w-50. its the best suited to climate conditions.

    wats with this heavy thing with fellow pak wheelers?

    5w-50 means that it maintains the required lubrication (viscosity) levels at both lower temperatures (cold startup) and higher temperatures (normal operation at midday with air conditioners).

    To maintain the viscosity for 50 grade the oil is to be made thicker to withstand the 50 rating. so a 5w-50 oil will be thicker than 5w-40 oil. That what heavy means. (In my understanding)

    no brother. it might be the case with old mineral oils. new synthetics are developed with additional additives to improve the viscosity stability for a bigger operation range.

    taglon is fully synthetic and its a very good oil.

    yes the synthetic oils are not made from natural crude oil , they give better perfromance in terms of stability of viscosity , and are targeted at high drain intervals.
    But still during making of synthetic oil 5w-40 will be a thinner oil than 5w-50.
    5w-50 is targeted towards the high performance cars , sports cars, F1 cars etc .
    so 5w-30 and 5w-40 will be good for daily driven cars like ours. Grande , corolla etc

    In my experience i use 5w-40 in my 1300cc gli and it feels heavier in drive and i get milage of 13kmpl with stock tyres and alloys , than the people using 5w-30 in their car. its the difference in thickness which created the difference in viscosity grade.

    The best brand of oil i have used in Pakistan is liqui moly but every body has their own preferences.
    thicker oil like 50 at end may have their disadvantages if you are using them in a daily driven car , which is Engine will use more power because of thick oil and the milage of the car will decrease.

    5w-50 is recommended for Sports car and Track cars. there is absolutely no need for using it in a family car like Corolla. I have made a mistake once by using in gli .

    Some references from where i read :
    Oil types, ratings, viscosity, choosing good oil
    Oil Specifications Explained - What does 10w40 mean?

    There are trade offs here. Thicker oils cause more friction and therefore more heat and they waste power and affect fuel consumption so it's always best to use the thinnest oil (i.e. second number) that you can get away with and still maintain oil pressure.

    In Toyota Canada, Japan, Korea l, Australia and USA. I can't see recommended oil increasing 10w-30 figure.
    It's a new engine from toyota, and i'm also worried about that 50 figure.
    Taglon is by far the worst copy of mobil 1 ever made by Toyota. I have used all the models of corolla after indus, and I have driven all of them for like 200,000 kilometers
    I don't really trust Toyota oils.
    So, what should I chose? I drive a lot, and by that I mean a lot.
    How about liqui moly synthetics, or total synthetics?
    All I want is the engine should breath instead of sneeze.

    40 figure for the viscosity at higher temperature is still high.
    Alright, the thing with higher viscosity is that the engine will struggle to move itself. The crankshaft will bear uncnecessary load. Hence, fuel consumption will increase and power will decrease. That's why I needed an expert advice on Mobil1, and for now it's not an option.
    Liqui moly have some oils under the rating of 10w-30. I would prefer to use those instead of this one.

    Does it come in 5w-30?
    Lemme know. I think that would be the best option for me.
    I have been using liqui moly 20w-50 in my 2010GLI, and it have big 196000km on its meter.
    I do trust liqui moly insteat of puny Toyota oil.

    You have a 1800cc engine with 136hp and it can bear 40 grade easily. More over bigger engine will produce more heat due to which i guess 30 grade wont be suitable. Do think about that too. You engine is perfectly capable of Eating 40 grade.
    We were also using this oil in our neighbors c180 kompressor 2007

    No, you're totally wrong here.
    Even if I have 500bhp. I would rather hesitate to go beyond recommended scale because the whole engine is designed to work under those conditions.
    Optimum working temperature of 2zr-fe isn't that much. It can even run with 0w-20, but considering conditions of Lahore, and my hometown in lower punjab as well. I'm going for 10w-30 or 5w-30 fully synthetic. 😜
    Brand recommendation would be appreciated.
    Mercedes is a whole lot of different story 😆. Don't go there 😜

    your choice. if you wanna stick to 5w-30 than go for micking max super.

    my experience with both micking 10-40 Max super and micking 5w-50 in my vitz 2SZ-FE is very good.
