I used to be bad about using the same oil forever. Now I tend to use whatever is cheapest. 2018 F150 3.5 Ecoboost OCI #1 - Pennzoil Gold Dexos (found at local Wholesale place like a Big Lot's). OCI #2 - Mobil 1 (On sale at Walmart + Rebate). OCI #3 - Motorcraft Blend WSS-M2C961-A1 (Free at Dealer) I guess it doesn't matter as long as it meets spec. Truth is they change formula about every other oil change anyway

In turbo engines I don't like conventional or blends even if they claim spec, from those you posted I would feel better about it with Mobil 1 in the sump. 2cents

Bad thing is I actually like Pennzoil Gold Dexos 1.2 specs better than PP. As to the new MC I used still no Data Sheet so who knows.

I'd probably go with the Mobil 1. Priced right and meets specs. Only blend I would go with would be Motorcraft.

Dealers are the equivalent of Stan on this board....they are all crooked....at least on BITOG.

I don't think our local dealer ever competes with big city prices ... but our small town service department seems better than many of the big city SD's. The SM, techs, and parts folks are steady employees when there is only one show in town.

Great point 4wd.... The type of people make the difference in service departments. It is definitely true that not all SDs are bad.... There are very good ones out there too.
