: The engine oil capacity is a reference quantity to be used when changing

the engine oil. Warm up and turn off the engine, wait more than 5 minutes,
and check the oil level on the dipstick.

Engine oil selection
“Toyota  Genuine  Motor  Oil”  is  used  in  your  Toyota  vehicle.  Use
Toyota approved “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil” or equivalent to sat-
isfy the following grade and viscosity.
Oil grade: ILSAC GF-5 multigrade engine oil
Recommended viscosity: SAE 0W-20

SAE  0W-20  is  the  best  choice  for
good fuel economy and good start-
ing in cold weather.
If SAE 0W-20 is not available, SAE
5W-20  oil  may  be  used.  However,
it  must  be  replaced  with SAE 0W-
20 at the next oil change.

Oil viscosity (0W-20 is explained here as an example):

• The 0W in 0W-20 indicates the characteristic of the oil which allows cold

startability. Oils with a lower value before the W allow for easier starting of
the engine in cold weather.

• The 20 in 0W-20 indicates the viscosity characteristic of the oil when the

oil is at high temperature. An oil with a higher viscosity (one with a higher
value) may be better suited if the vehicle is operated at high speeds, or
under extreme load conditions.

Gasoline quality
In very few cases, driveability problems may be caused by the brand of gaso-
line you are using. If driveability problems persist, try changing the brand of
gasoline. If this does not correct the problem, consult your Toyota dealer.

Recommendation of the use of gasoline containing detergent additives

Toyota recommends the use of gasoline that contains detergent additives to
avoid the build-up of engine deposits.

All  gasoline  sold  in  the  U.S.A.  contains  minimum  detergent  additives  to
clean and/or keep clean intake systems, per EPA’s lowest additives concen-
tration program.

Toyota  strongly  recommends  the  use  of Top Tier  Detergent  Gasoline.  For
more  information  on Top Tier  Detergent  Gasoline  and  a  list  of  marketers,
please go to the official website www.toptiergas.com.

Fuel information

You must only use unleaded gasoline.
Select octane rating 87 (Research Octane Number 91) or higher.
Use  of  unleaded  gasoline  with  an  octane  rating  lower  than  87
may result in engine knocking. Persistent knocking can lead to
engine damage.

At minimum, the gasoline you use should meet the specifications of
ASTM D4814 in the U.S.A..

476

8-1. Specifications

Recommendation of the use of low emissions gasoline
Gasolines  containing  oxygenates  such  as  ethers  and  ethanol,  as  well  as
reformulated gasolines, are available in some cities. These fuels are typically
acceptable for use, providing they meet other fuel requirements.
Toyota  recommends  these  fuels,  since  the  formulations  allow  for  reduced
vehicle emissions.

Non-recommendation of the use of blended gasoline

If you use gasohol in your vehicle, be sure that it has an octane rating no
lower than 87.

Toyota does not recommend the use of gasoline containing methanol.

Non-recommendation of the use of gasoline containing MMT
Some gasoline contains an octane enhancing additive called MMT (Methylcy-
clopentadienyl Manganese Tricarbonyl).
Toyota  does  not  recommend  the  use  of  gasoline  that  contains  MMT.  If  fuel
containing  MMT  is  used,  your  emission  control  system  may  be  adversely
affected.
The malfunction indicator lamp on the instrument cluster may come on. If this
happens, contact your Toyota dealer for service.

If your engine knocks

Consult your Toyota dealer.

You may occasionally notice light knocking for a short time while accelerat-
ing or driving uphill. This is normal and there is no need for concern.

Use only gasoline containing up to 15%
ethanol.
DO  NOT  use  any  flex-fuel  or  gasoline
that could contain more than 15% etha-
nol,  including  from  any  pump  labeled
E30,  E50,  E85  (which  are  only  some
examples  of  fuel  containing  more  than
15% ethanol).

DO NOT use gasoline contain-
ing more than 15% ethanol.

(30% ethanol)

(50% ethanol)

(85% ethanol)

NOTICE

Notice on fuel quality

Do not use improper fuels. If improper fuels are used, the engine will be
damaged.

Do not use leaded gasoline.
Leaded gasoline can cause damage to your vehicle’s three-way catalytic
converters causing the emission control system to malfunction.

Do not use gasohol other than the type previously stated.
Other  gasohol  may  cause  fuel  system  damage  or  vehicle  performance
problems.

Using unleaded gasoline with an octane number or rating lower than the
level previously stated will cause persistent heavy knocking.
At worst, this will lead to engine damage.

Fuel-related poor driveability
If poor driveability (poor hot starting, vaporization, engine knocking, etc.) is
encountered after using a different type of fuel, discontinue the use of that
type of fuel.

When refueling with gasohol
Take care not to spill gasohol. It can damage your vehicle’s paint.
