When you open your bonnet, you will notice a black cover, written on it is the engine oil weight and technicals eg 5W30 API/SN. That is what the manufacture (the person wey spend money to do the car) specify.
Mobil one xhp is 20w50, which is not recommended.
Your engine is 1MZFE same as mine go and buy confirm synthetic oil weight (5w30) and enjoy your life though extremely expensive but the feel after years Chai.
I was doing 60km/h when I saw this range Rover showing himself on the road, I decided to do "kick down" you just need to feel the power, 160km/h in 5secs
I have been using 5w40 since I bought the car and I change oil 8000km or 6months,spens around 12k on 5L oil and 1500 on filter, I service car myself I no dey gree grease kazeem hand

thanks for your comment, Please can you list names of synthetic oil weight (5w30) e.g Mobil, Oando, Total etc and where to buy them? with prices..
Lastly, you said you have been using 5w40 since you bought the car, why using it since the recommended oil is 5w30?

Just walk into the fueling stations and ask for their full synthetic if they have, they would tell you the price. You will see the oil weight as 5w30, they don't keep them on the shelf outside it's always inside the store.
The figure after the W doesn't matter much, it's the figure before the W that is the koko but don't use 0w20 or 5w20 for your engine because of the year and mileage that car would have raked in.
We have trusted oil sellers here in Lagos talk to cc GAZZUZZ and autopartz here on nairaland they will sell you quality recommended oil.

I recommend M1 over Castrol.
I won't use Castrol even in my lawnmower.
