Fram Ultra for the filter. For oil, I like Pennzoil ultra if you can find it or Pennzoil platinum or Mobil 1.

Let the debates begin.

I'd vote for TGMO 0w20 and a Fram Ultra. Very stout oil for long intervals.

+1 on this, for at least a 7,500 mile OCI. Both the oil and filter can easily take it.

So decades ago teh State of calif Fleet Management (like 50K cars and trucks) ran tests and when it was all boiled down, decided that any OEM MFG filter, or good national brand filter (WIX, Baldwin, and now Fram Ultra) should always go 12,000 miles (2 Oil Changes). The filters were still performing well at 12K on average across GM, Ford, Chrysler, I-H, etc.

So that would be my baseline. 12K changes with any good filter. As to oil, I'd look to the stoutest 5W-20 I could find and run that. Maybe Castrol or Pennz or M1 ...

I think a Motorcraft filter could easily handle 10k highway miles. They are awesome filters for the money. Amsoil XL is marketed exactly for 10k OCI's, I'm running it currently in my truck with a Motorcraft filter I just put on tonight at 4k miles. This filter will be on it for the next 6k so we'll how it does and I plan to cut it open.

Pennzoil Platinum 5W-20 works well in the 3.5L in my 2012 Taurus. I'm currently running a FRAM Ultra as well. I follow the oil life monitor with Pennz. Platinum & either FRAM Ultra, FRAM Tough Guard or Motorcraft oil filters. OLM will take me 8,500-10,000 miles & the engine is clean enough inside to eat off of. Haha
