oil question

So Ford is doing my oil changes for another 2 or 3 oil changes. (came with the new motor they had to put in since they blew it up lol) my question is Can I/ should I run Archoil with the regular oil, Non synthetic? I see most of you guys are runnning it, but most of you are also running T6 or other types of Synthetics.

You can run it with dino oil. I run the Archoil with T6 just for preventive purposes. Just placed a 32oz order yesterday.

Yes you can run it with conventional or synthetic. We run synthetic because it runs better and holds up better in these engines. We also use these additives with synthetic as it works better because of the better quality of oil.

I plan on switching to synthetic as soon as I have to pay for an oil change. LOL I just wanted to make sure that I can run Archoil in the truck with out pulling a Ford LOL

Ok. Just seems like I've been seeing it mentioned a lot lately. All I've ever used is Rev-X
