it all depends what you wat to run

Full Synthetic

semi Synthetic etc

i would suggest Full Synthetic

and depending on your Engine condition the oil viscos will change also

personally i would go for

5w30

mobile 1

Elf turbolight

Penzoil etc

i use those oils

i think the IS200 takes around 5L if my memory is correct

Thanks, my car has only ran 50,000KM, still the 5w-30? I've heard about the brand named Royal Purple and Motul, what do u think of these 2 brands?

3sg takes 5w30, the 1g gets 10w60. castrol edge is very good.

& yes toyota uses castrol (gtx though)

Hi all, after a long time, I've finally change the engine oil twice now, I am now using the royal purple 10w30, it makes my car more smoother on acceleration and quiet. So far it seems good to me.
