Zic oils are not fully synthetic and are made from group 3 base oils hence they evaporate at High Temperatures. For 2007 Prius the recommended oil was changed from 5W-30 to 0W-20 and you can confirm this by looking for a label under your bonnet stating 0w-20 recommendation.
    I am using Zic A+ (5w-20) and its fully synthetic!
    Infact other oils (rather then zic) in same viscosity are not fully synthetic

    I think Kixx Pao 1 is Group 4 oil. But its available in 0W-30. Kixx Neo is available in 0W-20

    Yes Zic A+ and Zic 0W is maked as synthetic, but they are made from cheap group 3 base oil, so you can say they are kind of semi synthetic. Mobil 1 and Kixx Pao 1 is made from Group 4 base oil.

    I agree the oils are good. I am using Zic 0W-30 this time because i was unable to get Liquimoly or Kixx. Zic A+ 5W-20 is also very good for Hybrids.
