Decent oil, 10w-30 is great for the 4.0. OCI determined through UOA, or manual if that's how you roll.


I use the overseas manual to choose my oil viscosity.

It’s a 4.0, anything from (recommended) 10W30 up to 20W50 works fine.

Depends on your location. O'Reilly is 0 miles away from where I work and Walmart is at least a 30 minute drive away, and gas isn't free. O'Reilly oil is fine, I haven't seen many UOAs of it but I've used it in various vehicles with no problems.

Walmart will ship a couple jugs/filters to your doorstep for free.

If it has the API starburst logo "for gasoline engines" and the classification donut that meets/exceeds your required spec, you can use it.
See the passenger car engine oil information provided here.

If you don't mind motor oil in a cardboard box, Havoline's 6qt smart change boxes sold through Walmart beat Supertech on price per quart. If you can meet a $35 floor, Walmart will deliver it to your doorstep for free.

I don’t know yet but OReillys keeps giving me $10 of $20 so I buy their Dexos full syn. Makes it a good price and I don’t have to go to Walmart.

Reasonable logic to me.

For me, it's a mile or so out of the way on my commute, so it's nothing for me to swing in. If it was more effort then I'd do bulk buys and/or looking into mailorder.

I'm trying hard to find a motor oil without the starburst or donut. Does that even exist?

I just bought 5 quarts of O'Reilly full synthetic. Pretty good price with the coupon. If the coupons keep coming, I will keep buying. $22 oil becomes $12 oil.

If nothing else, this jug could be used to top off between oil changes. Just keep it in the back of car, along with other assorted "just in case" stuff.

I don't have a fancy car with a high performance engine. It's a Ford, which is not all that special.
Factory spec is synthetic blend. Just about any oil will do for me.
