I was reading the manual today and noticed 5-20 was the only wt called for in all of No. America. In Mexico and Canada a full synthetic was called for, and in the US a semi-synthetic. No mention of dino at all. Also no mention of heavier oils either.

I've always used semi-syn in my Fusion, but wondered if I could use dino with a shorter interval.

Pretty much all "conventional" oils are semi-synth now. There really aren't any conventional oils as we have known them in the past.

Yeah tig1 I ran full synthetic Castrol gold bottle or Valvoline Synpower 5w20 in my 08 Ford Fusion 3.0 SE. It ran very well on either of those. I miss that big ol whomping XG-2 Fram Ultra. That's a nice large oil filter.

I use 5w20 FS in my CMax instead of the suggested 0w20
I still get phenomenal mileage.

When I first bought my 2007 Fusion I did one change with 5-30 EP for 10K. After that I did one change with 5-20 EP, the rest have been with 0-20AFE.
at 10K.

I think the oil has to meet a certain Ford spec- which, when my Focus was new, the Ford spec was met by many conventionals.

Note: the 2.0L and 2.7L Ecoboost engines require 5W30. The hybrid 2.0L calls for 0W20.

The Ecoboosts spec 5W-30, and 5W-50 in the case of the 2.3 used in the Focus RS.

"Synthetic" or "semi-synthetic" is not a spec. Meaningless verbiage.

Has WSS-M2C945-A been superceded?

I'll bet WSS-M2C945-A is still the requirement (in the US at least) and almost any 5w-20, conventional, blend or synthetic meets it.
