Will you recommend this ?

Hello
Its time for me to change my own oil now @ 80,000 mi...now that my service contact is up @ 75,000.
Just wondering if this oil is good for the 6.7 ? or should I stick with Motorcraft?
Thanks for your input.

I use T5 and have had no issues. Seems to be good oil.

Do you notice any different in mileage? VS stock oil?

I'm getting roughly 17.5 MPG on my daily 40 mile round trip to and from work. This is a mixture of half highway and half city driving.

Thats what I use. I change every 5,000 miles. I don't wait for the computer to tell me to. As far as MPG gain... No

I've run it. Ran an oil analysis...all was good. If you ever want a gut check....send it out for a quick analysis. There are many options. I use Blackstone Labs. $25. Piece of mind.

What's with the 50 Degrees F limit on 10W-30 on the Ford Oil recommendation? This document shows 10W-30 service temps from 0F to 50F, and 5W-40 from -20F to 100F+

Makes me wonder if 10W-30 is the right all purpose viscosity. I'll probably go 5W-40 when the first change comes around.
