incidentally kingo while you here, is there any reason why we dont use fully synthetic oils in the corolla? (mines the 2.0d4d) i currently use toyotas own 5w-30 but am thinking of switching to 5w-40 as the mileage increases, currently on about 90K

No specific reason other than it is NOT required by Toyota, you could use it but 5w 30 is perfectly good enough and considerably cheaper. 5w 30 is widely available and at a good price, if you change it regularly then there is no need to change grades. Change it every 10K or less in harsh conditions
