Question:
Does a New Toyota Camry Have to Break In on Conventional Oil?
Hi, We have just purchased a 2009 Camry LE 2.4L. We were told to not run a synthetic oil until we have about 12,000 miles on the vehicle.  Does this sound reasonable? So I am looking to use Mobil Clean 5000 5W-20 until that time and 0W-20 Mobil 1 in the winter. Thanks in advance for your input.

Answer:
No, you can start using Mobil 1 0W-20 Advanced Fuel Economy right now and get better fuel economy than using a higher viscosity grade motor oil while getting the outstanding protection only a synthetic like Mobil 1 can provide.
