So we are buying a new house and I will be losing my garage, so I figure I should change my oil now instead of in a snow filled driveway.

Right now PP, Castrol black bottle, Valvoline syn and Shell gas truck are all onsale for the same price roughly, $26-$30/5L jug. I'll also change it on the 2.5 Fusion while im at it, fusion is off warranty so jumping up to 5w30 is a non issue. I can change both from 2 jugs, so either way I am buying 2b may as well use them up.

Which would you guy recommend. I change on time more than milage, truck is 7 months old but last years model (2018) and has 5000km on it, got it in March. , fusion has 2000km (2014) it since last oil change in December. Both are just personal vehicles that get used on weekends, wife is on mat leave and I have a company truck. Winter is coming so will see temps down to the -40 range, may or may not be plugged in

I'm running Rotella GT in my vehicles at the moment. It's doing well by my early accounts.

BTW, Rotella GT is designated as an all-mileage, SN+ oil. It should do fine in your EB engines.

Let us know what you decide to go with.

Magnatec does well in EB engines. We have the UOAs here to prove it. If extreme cold weather is in the mix Quaker State Ultimate Durability 5w30 has a pour point of -50c.

Don't run too long of an oil change interval. I stick with 7500 miles even with full synthetic. This pretty much goes for most modern GTDI engines.

5W-xx synthetic oil can handle anything but the very, very, VERY worst that Canada's winter can throw at it

It's the truck. The 2.5L engine isn't a boosted variant (it's an older, but reliable, Mazda design).

The truck is the Eco boost 3.5, and as quoted the 2.5 is not.

I use edge 0w40 and Valvoline 15w40 in mine and have no issues.

I have about 100k worth of uoa on edge on this forum with a truck that towed heavy quite a bit.

I also have over 50k worth of uoa on here with Kendall 5 w30.

Obviously I didn't follow Ford's recommendation on the oil weight but I tend to fall in the thicker is better camp.

My 2016 has about 110k on it now and it runs great new uoa on it in about a week.

I personally think if you use a quality Xw40 oil you can go the 10k oil change route. If you use 30 weight I would change at 7500.

I use the 40 weight because of the timing chain stuff I read about. Not that I am freaking out about it but it is the only thing I think about on this truck.

Dilution for me is a minor worry and I am in the camp of as long as it's less than 5% it's a non issue.

Sorry for the missive. 😁
