New Toyotas run on water – the oil is extremely thin

We are not talking about hydrogen cars. But the oil that Toyota pours on new, especially new hybrid cars, resembles water. Then thin it.

Mazda actually does the same. If the oil is to comply with the regulations of a number of Japanese car manufacturers, it must be extremely thin. It is indeed a mixture of additives that the oil in both new Toyota and Mazda models consists of. Oil manufacturers Liqui Moly and Champion have developed 0W-8 oils that the latest hybrids from Mazda and Toyota can run on. According to the manufacturers, the oils meet the JASO GLV-1 standard, which the Japanese require.

Whether it is profitable, however, is another matter. Toyota defends the choice of oil with hybrid technology in particular. A cold hybrid engine often starts at high revs. Which in turn makes it possible for water to enter the engine. In response, a lot of additives are added. And those are the ones that are expensive to develop. So compared to the extremely small tolerance of the motors. In a number of forum threads, Toyota owners are already eagerly discussing the new oil type. Among other things, one has noticed that American Toyota customers in brand new cars are advised to stay away from anything other than 0W-8 oil. And if it is not available, the owners can pour a 0W-16 on their cars, writes a user on Rav4world.com.
