  1. Thank you for this information. I was trying out different ways and found that holding the odometer button down while it is on the total mileage readout will bring you to the eco mode menu, press the odometer button again to to turn it off or on. Car was running when I got this menu.

  2. Dear Sir
    I am using Camry 2013 in Saudi Arabia (Middle east). My doubts is, What type of engine oil recommended for my vehicle?
    The main reason to ask you the doubt is (even seen your above post), I came to know from one unofficial source that 20W-50 is better one considering the climate of this region.

    So please would you suggest your professional opinion, Thanks.


  3. Hi Ahmad,

    The specification for engine oil is based on a temperature range of -29 C to +38 C. For you particular application you will need to check with your Toyota dealership to see what oils will meet the hot, dry climate you are driving the vehicle in. Based on where you live the 0W20 oil will not meet the requirements of your climate. However, a synthetic oil will be better suited to your climate. Without knowing the your particular part of the world and the types of oil available for use I would highly recommend discussing oil requirements for your vehicle with your dealership or consult your owner’s manual. I realize this does not answer your question directly but you will need to select the oil based on climate but also what will provide the best performance for your engine.
