Hey all! I have a 2015 Fusion Titanium with the 2.0L Turbo engine. I'm going to switch to 10k OCI's (with Valvoline Full Synthetic 5w-30) and am wondering if the Motorcraft FL-910s is safe for that distance. As always, all advice is appreciated

I've got a 2016 Fusion with the 2.0 the fl-910s should be fine for up to 10,000 miles. I think any filter would be fine for that mileage, many claim 10,000 miles including Supertech and Fram $3 filters. I change my ecoboost oil around 4,000-5,000 just because the black oil bothers me. These engines seem hard on oil.

I was doing the same until the dealer raised the price of an oil change to $50, and that's with Motorcraft semisynthetic. The Tire Discounters near my house will do it with Valvoline Full Synthetic for $64.

The Motorcraft is still a better value with factory recommended OCI's. Valvoline synthetic does not perform 22% better than Motorcraft.

Get yourself a DIY kit at Walmart with Motorcraft semisynthetic oil for $19 or QSUD $17.97 full synthetic and change and a Fram Tough Guard for just under $7.

It would if the Valvoline full synthetic was run out to 10K. I'd never run the Motorcraft semi-synthetic more than 5K, seen too many UOAs showing it shears too much for my liking. $50 for 5K miles or $64 for 10K miles, or even 7500 miles would still be ahead.
