Probably the thread related to fuel dilution. There's a theory going around that these direct injected engines, including the 2.0L Duratec, dillute the oil with fuel and thus you need an oil that can withstand that.

I haven't seen anyone produce a UOA showing any measurable fuel dillution, though. So not really sure if it's a real concern or not.
