I have only used Royal Purple 5W30 since I purchased the truck new. 28,000 miles currently. My oil change station sold out and now they don't rotate tires or handle RP oil. So, I'm looking for a new service center and therefore also looking for the best oil I can use for having turbos and pulling a boat. I'm new to this forum and I'm hoping this isn't an over asked question.
Thanks in Advance!!!

If your preference is 5W/30 I would look at Amsoil Signature 5W/30 or Amsoil HDD product code. It's a mixed fleet oil, and oil of choice for each of my rides. Pablo can assist you on this. I'm back today after many years away from this forum.

Why not just run Ford OEM oil? We know Ford has put some thought into this, so you really cant go wrong with that. Ford specs WSS-M2C946-A, and for warranty purposes I would stick to something that meets that spec, and you have plenty of oils that are certified; Mobile 1, Pennzoil, any big brand oil really. A lot of newer cars seem to have a digital oil temp built in. If you have one pay some attention to it, see what kinds of oil temps you're hitting when you're towing. I'm sure ford put into consideration towing capacity and all that and you have some sort of oil cooler so your oil shouldnt be getting ridiculously hot the way oil does on a race track.

If you dont mind losing your warranty and want to go rogue Redline is a pretty stout oil, although pricey. Thinking about your situation the key points I see are you have turbos which are hard on oil, you tow a boat, and you live in an area with a hot environment. All of those equate to putting a lot of stress on the oil with heat, so in my opinion having an oil that can handle the heat is a must. The reason I recommend redline is because it's a thick 5w30, and the base oil can handle plenty of heat. I would personally bump up to 5w40 and just run something off the shelf,, but you're asking for the best and I'm just giving you my opinion. I personally run walmart brand synthetic oil, but then my truck never hauls anything and sees very easy driving, so I'm not one of these guys that thinks one should only use the most expensive oil out there because of marketing. Like I mentioned earlier anything off the shelf will suffice, and best vs not the best is only a fraction of a % different otherwise you'd see some numbers on these oil performance graphs every company puts on their bottle and website.

The owners manual gives the specs for the oil requirements. I would study which oils which meet the specs and use one that is blended the thickest. Don't get fooled by posted regurgitated marketing claims.. How much does the boat weigh?

Was that regular RP or the high performance oil? A very popular choice for the Ecoboost engines is Castrol Magnatec or even QSUD both of which I believe carry the Ford requirements and would be good for a 5k oci.

Lots and lots of options. If you are following a severe service OCI, any synthetic 30 weight should be just fine. Castrol Magnatec and Supertech are an example.
If you are following an extended drain interval, I would pick something at least certed to ACEA A3. Mobil 1 High Mileage 10w-30 is an example.
If the sky is the limit for oil price, I would probably stop myself at something meeting VW 504? Mobil 1 ESP 5w-30 is an example.

You're in Louisiana, so you don't need a 5w-30; I would probably opt for a 10w-30 if the line of oil offers it.

Oh and yes, this question gets asked a lot.

Since your looking for a new oil change service center, it would be helpful to know what's available in your location.

You have a high-output, turbocharged V6 putting out, what, 450 HP/510 ft-lbs torque? Plus, you’re towing?

I’d say your truck and usage call for a heavy-duty oil, especially since the 3.5 EcoBoost engines are known to benefit from a heavier grade of oil (timing chain wear). And the climate you’re in is perfect for a HD oil.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Mobil Delvac 1 5W-40. I’ve read here that some consider it to be Mobil’s best 40W oil. That is probably what I’d run in it.

If you’re super-concerned about staying with what’s called for in the book, I’d find a heavier, full-synthetic 5W-30 with an HTHS rating of at least 3.5. I believe Mobil 1 ESP 5W-30 and Pennzoil Platinum EuroLX 5W-30 meet that criteria.

JJack, I see you live in Lafayette. I work at Fournet's Chevron next to Mel's Diner on Johnston. We don't typically handle RP, mostly Chevron, Havoline, Mobil 1 and Castrol Edge. We can see about special ordering you some if you don't just buy the oil/filter yourself and have us change it for a rack charge. Otherwise we can use M1 5W30 and our filter.

M1 runs 12.95/QT Havoline 11.95 and rotations are about 22.50 before tax.

Come by or give us a call, Talk to Dave https://www.fournetschevron.com/

Thanks - Sam
