Well I want to thank the guys got the recommendation I got for the wife's Rogue, should last many long miles on the Mobil 1

Now my car needs one... I'm running a 2016 2.0 EcoBoost AWD Fusion... 75,000kms on it. Lots of short trips with some longer ones every week or so... I drive harder then the wife drives her rogue as well lol
Only put 15,000 kms on it last 15 months as well, I'm 3 minutes from work so there is the short trips. Last 3 to 4 Oil changes I was running PUP 5w30 but hearing it's not the best for lspi I want to try something better.

What would you guys recommend?

The Ecoboost engine at work get bulk 5W30 at 5K OCI'S with cheapest bidder filters. After 8 years there has not been a oil related failure. So use API SN motor oil and don't worry.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

Only thing that might be better, as you say you want, is to go for the more premium oils on the market. Get Ravenol DXG 5w-30 dexos1 Gen2 oil (LSPI resistant) for a great premium oil, with expensive PAO, and use of tungsten FM. .... If you don't want better, then any full synthetic 5w30 you see on the shelf will be OK for that car. You could even use Mobil 1 AFE 0w30 since winters can be bad where you are, and it's fine in the summer too. Fram Ultra oil filter of course.

Well I have a 2016 Fusion 2.0 awd and I use Chevron Supreme 5w30. It's a semi synthetic SN plus rated oil and I'm changing mine at 5,000 miles. I think almost all conventional oils including Supertech are SN plus now. My wife does a lot of short trips.

Just get you some 5W30 Chevron Havoline Pro DS. It meets Ford specs and and all other current requirements. Walmart carries it in 6qt. boxes and at a good price.

I was wondering when someone was going to mention Ravenol. I just havent read any reports or reviews on it.

Reports & reviews are nearly worthless. Some use phrases like "it's real slippery", or my fav: "it's smooth". Nothing there.
What counts is what its made of, and what performance specs it meets. Ravenol tends to place itself in the upper-tier category based on what matters. The hope is that you get cleaner pistons, as wear is similar enough between all the different full-syns in the world.

Therefore, go by performance specs alone, or combine that with how expensive the material components are. That will lead you to German specs in the extreme, and/or the all-PAO oils like Ravenol. Taking into account the reputation of the company, preferably with deep engineering roots, and Ravenol appears to qualify.

What does Ravenol do to make the engine last longer then the specified oil from Ford?


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

Not sure what you mean, since that Ravenol IS Ford spec'ed oil. Ford WSS-M2C946-A according to the Owner's Manual. So what's your question then?
With the all-PAO formula, and additional dexos1 Gen2 qualifications on top of the Ford WSS-M2C946-A spec you ignored, the oil qualifies for better wear protection and fewer deposits, if one wants that. You might not want any of that, and it's your choice.

It certainly costs more. That’s about the only real world difference you will see.

This is my recommendation as well.

UOA's with Magnatec and EB's seem good.

So there's less money for gas, and therefore less driving...so the vehicle lasts longer. Brilliant!
