Just what the title says. I'm looking for the least expensive oil I can find that meets the Ford F1 spec for the 6.7 powerstroke. I can find 15W-40 sales down to about $10/gal but finding 10W-30 deals is usually harder. Any suggestions?

Probably any one of the Farm store fleet type brands such as Harvest King, Mag1, etc. should be more cost efficient.

Not sure what's available in SC so here's the approved list:

Why run a 10W-30 unless you short trip or do freezing starts.

The only farm store around here is tractor supply, which has a 15W-40 but no 10W-30. And for whatever reason, T4 in 15W-40 is discounted much more often than 10W-30, at least locally.

Why not? Fuel mileage should be better.

Mystik JT-8 10W30 is a really good inexpensive one, I tend to pick up some whenever I'm in the Greater Chicago area, but there's no Blains Farm & Fleet around here.

Plenty of them; probably going to have to shop your area for deals, and/or look for coupons.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

This looks great, but there's no Blains near here either. I'll keep my eyes open. I think TSC used to carry Mystik, I just haven't seen it lately.
