I read ford back spec'd this engine to 5w-20 just for this reason. I'd like to know if running 5w-20 cuts oil burning. Have you considered switching to Motorcraft 5w-20 right away? Run it 5000 miles and measure make up oil for the last 2000 mile

I've ran it in two cars (neither that I own anymore) when I got it for that price in the past. It worked fine using the OLM for the oil changes. Based on noise and the butt dyno it felt similar to Napa and O'Reilly synthetic oils...nothing special

A fossil fuel(dual fuel) kit may be required if the heat pump's auxiliary/emergency heat is provided by oil, natural gas or propane. If you have electric auxiliary heat it's usually a non-issue.
