See oil chart. Your vehicle should be represented there. It can use both 5w30 and 5w20 oil

Call us 09086679585 to get the genuine Toyota Motor Oil 5w20

Your car should be using 5w30 oil either full synthetic or semi synthetic.
Meanwhile, what type of smoke is your car bringing out? If it's early in the morning, check if it's steam which is absolutely OK but if not, contact me for fully synthetic 5w30 oil if you are within Port Harcourt and it's environs.
N/B: This offer comes cheap.

What type of Total oil did you use for the oil change?

It is not the type of oil used but the quantity. May have been overfilled. Check ur manual for the volume of oil ur car needs

@ op your engine has 5W30 as the recommended engine oil,use mobil 1 extended performance 5W30,it should be ok.
I was using mobil 1 until a friend introduced Mannol 5W30 to me,i switched over still got good performance with mannol which is cheaper than Mobil 1.

Avalon of what year?
When was engine serviced last before most recent service?
How much oil was used?
Does engine have history of oil shortage between service intervals?
What's vehicle mileage?

Go for diagnosis to 1st confirm why the reason for the white smoke before you conclude is due to oil

Your oil capacity is 5quarts not 5 litres although I doubt that is the problem. 5qts is 4.73L.
Are you sure the smoke started after the last oil change?
What is the colour of the smoke, white, blush white or black?
