Would the car you have you have no choice but to run a partial blends or full synthetic. i say full synthetic is 100% worth it

The motor craft 5-20 synthetic blend is very good oil its good to 5k if you wanna go longer get Castro edge 5-20 in my opionion its better oil and either go with a wix or motor craft filter the best on the market
