Can I Use This Oil?


Recommended Posts

Hello, I've 5 ltrs of 5w-40 oil (bottle still sealed) from my previous car. Would this be ok in my 52 plate IS200 with 41k on the clock and full Lexus service history? I've seen 5w-30 being recommended on this forum but wonder how much difference there is between that and the oil I've got sat around. Greatful for any help.

what's the best oil to use in an 02 plate IS300 Auto please? thanks.

fully synthetic 5W-30 or 5W-40 oil which has API-SJ, API-SL and API-SM on the label. lean towards 5W-30 with API-SL or API-SM for better engine protection, performance, and improved fuel consumption.
