My bad.
Specifically when the original poster suggesting that Ford was using special break in oils with "microparticles" this was an extremely false statement. Factory fill is the same 5w20 semi-synthetic oil as is sold elsewhere with no special additives.

There are some exceptions that are not niche players, like Honda, but more often than not these days that is still a widely believed old wives tale.
