So back to buying more oil again... My stocks have ran out so looking for something else to buy. This is my wife's car, so she drives gingerly with 60% on the highway and 40% on the regular roads. Pretty much zero stop and go in terms of city driving.

I use Ford filters on her engine. Calls for 5w30.

Suggestions on oil? I was using Valvoline Advanced Full Syn.

Kirkland looks to have their own now, but I'm down for whatever you guys think.

Keep using Valvoline unless it will impact your kids inheritance or make you eat dog food.

Use any high quality 5w-30 syn, the two mentioned are fine. More important: just be sure your OCI is no longer than 5k miles. Fuel dilution is a known issue.

With the proper ratings and viscosity oil is oil. Buy Redline or Amsoil.

Kirkland oil is on-sale right now. I believe its $22 for 2 5qt jugs in store. Hard to beat and all stores carry the 5w30.


yup

I’ve used 5W-30 RGT in my 2017 Lincoln 2.0T
Seems to be working fine
But from what I can tell these motors aren’t picky on oil type
