Did the VC on a '08 Focus SE. Was primarily a long-commute work car for the girl's dad before she took it to college last year - had Valvoline Synpower in the sump according to the sticker and she said he always uses full syn. Pretty stinkin' clean, I'd say. Valvoline HM syn and a WIx filter went back in.

Not sure on OCI - probably whatever the sticker from his preferred lube place said. The last fill was changed out about 1,700 before the sticker said 'cuz it was in for a mild overheat and the oil looked dark, but that number couldn't have been a 3K interval because since the last change it went from Syracuse, NY, to Kansas City, from there to KY and back 1.5 (maybe 2.5) times, and her daily running around near KC.
