6.7L Oil Consumption

What is the Avg. Oil consumption rate of this newer engine ?
1qt every 1500-2000 miles? Please give me some Feed-Back.
Also, any thoughts on Rotella's T-6 5w40 Synthetic for use in this engine?

You shouldn't have any consumption really in 5-6k miles. Maybe half a quart

At about 16,250 I don't see any oil consumption. Since 500 mi I've used Motorcraft 5-40 full syn. (made by Kendall) and I think it's rated higher than T-6 and yes, it dose cost a little more.

I just changed my oil for the first time at 3,000 miles, that 10w30 poured out like water, I put 15-40 back in, is that to thick for these motor's? I will be going synthetic but I figured I would wait untill 10,000 or so.

Honestly you shouldn't see any oil consumption and you actually may see a slight bit of oil production from regens.

Are you sure it's made by Kendall? Everything else Motorcraft is Conoco.

I currently have about 6500 miles since my last oil change. Maybe at the most it's used 1/2 qt. The dipsticks are very hard to read but I'm still in the safe zone.

Also, I would use a Full Synthetic that uses a Group IV (PAO) basestock. Shell Full Syns are only Group III

Where are you buying the Motocraft oil? Online or at the stealership?

Kendall, Conoco and Phillips are all basically the same company. Each make very similar products and sell to Ford per their specs. Kendall actually makes 2 versions of a 5w-40 full syn. One is the Ford version and the other is a version that contains titanium. The Ford version does NOT have titanium. The Motorcraft 5w-40 Full Synthetic is only sold by dealers and parts stores that carry Motorcraft parts and fluids. I have my dealership do the 13 qt oil change and filter mess. They give me a VERY fair price; $132.51 out the door with a free truck wash.
