On my last car, I ran all Amsoil full-synth.

However, I discovered (the first/sales dealer didn't even tell me about this! ) that my car has the 30K maintenance plan - which covers 4 oil changes in that time period. Those are done with Motorcraft Semi-Synth.

Now, I had them put in full-synth last time (and paid the $20 surcharge) but I'm curious what you guys think... should I just stick with the semi while it's free to me? Especially since it'll be changed every 5K or so since I have 15K on the car and 3 freebie changes remaining...

Once the plan expires, I'll probably start doing my own Amsoil changes again.
