I've never heard that it's anything special, so would say it's the same as off the self.

It is dyed. The factory fills on my '11 Focus and parents' 13 and 18 Escapes were yellow.

Nothing special about it. I don't know of any company today using break in oils, some use moly compounds for assembly and it finds it way into the oil but other than initial startup it does nothing for break in.

I thought Motorcraft oil is a ConocoPhillips product?

I have read here that Honda uses a FF break-in oil.

When you think about it, all factory fill oil is a break-in oil, but are there any particular oils that would be better than the factory fill for breaking in a new engine?
Don't most mfg. say to use FF until the first recommended oil change?
Yes, I am sure this and every other automotive topic has been discussed here, but some fresh opinions would be appreciated.

What engine? All different.

Unless you worked there - nobody knows.

Honda and ford use Conoco as OE service fill.

Ford does not recommend any special break-in conditions as it relates to the oil. There has never been any evidence they use special oil, so I think it is safe to assume itís normal Motorcraft stock

I believe our 5w-50 Motorcraft up here might be a special import. I wonder what has gone on with Canadian Motorcraft HDEOs to prevent Ford from having fits about phosphorus levels. wink
