Q: recommended oil for 2000 Avalon on 2000 Toyota Avalon

I have 93,000 miles on my 2000 Avalon. What type and grade oil should I be using. My service providers have been using a synthetic blend oil, but I don't know the weight. I regularly change both oil AND filter every 5,000 miles.

5W30 is the oil you want to use.

"synthetic blend" is fine; also a quality oil like Mobil conventional oil is good.
I THANK YOU FOR THE QUICK RESPONSE. I BELIEVE YOUR RECOMMENDATION IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING SINCE I HAD THE CAR. JUST WONDERED IF THERE MIGHT BE A CHANGE IN VIEW OF THE MILEAGE .
Good question; if you perform regular maintenance as you have done, continue down the same path; no need to "compensate" for anything, as that engine is good for many miles to come under normal use.

Incidentally; don't get too hung up on "synthetic blend" oils. Toyota actually utilizes Mobil for their dealership oil program - and the standard oil they supply is not even a synthetic blend. A high quality conventional oil can be better than some synthetic blends. As with anything, not everything is as it seems to be at first glance...
