Oil?

So I'm getting ready to do my oil change here in the next week or so and I'd like some feedback on what brand of oil and whether or not I should use full synthetic or something other than that on my 2009 Ford Focus Se. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated... thanks

I've been using Mobil 1 since my car was new. I perfer synthetic oil myself. Its up to you, so people are ok w/ the Motorcraft synblend. Just go to your local Wally World & checkout all the choice's & grab a motorcraft filter.

Walmart's Super Tech, with Motorcraft oil filter. I've been using that brand for a while now, and it's not bad at all.

Mobile One I believe is the Ford recommended brand.

I have been using that one as well.

Hey, h8trs gonna hate! I run castrol "edge" as it is now called. I run it because I am so used to putting it in BMWs. I figured since they run it for 15 to 20 thousand miles I can do it for 6 or 7 easy lol
