Kill it with fire. Seriously, next time you do an oil change get a filter that isn't extremely shitty. You're running pretty good oil, so why waste it with one of the crappiest filters available?

I wonder if 0w-20w oil would help MPG w/o any harmful effects...especially in the winter, it is tempting to use it. Anybody using it? If it worked, why wouldn't Ford list it in the owner's manual? They'd love to get higher MPG (even if just 0.01MPG) essentially for free.

It is odd/surprising that quite a few enthusiasts still use Frams. A guy online tore apart various motorcycle filters, and Fram was clearly the worst, so much so that I don't care if they are better now, they lost my confidence/trust forever.

I bet Ford/Motorcraft filters are good, and they are pretty inexpensive. I however mostly use the expensive Purolator Pur-1 (who probably make Ford's anyhow!). I plan to buy some decent filters on Amazon instead of waiting for local sales.

Not everyone that posts on a forum is an "enthusiast."


Actually it's very hard to beat an OE filter(any maker's OE). About the only ones that do are Mobil1, Purolator PureOne, and Bosch.

Yeah, but people who use full synthetic are likely enthusiasts though.

I don't think that's anywhere near true.

You are a little confused about your oil filters. The fram extraguard is the crap one. The ultra is one of the best built filters on the market. I would know, I've cut a few open. The orange can is the one with cardboard end caps. The ultra is metal with mesh backed media, it's one of the best filters available. Better than purolator these days, what with all the media tears being reported over on Bobistheoilguy.

Anyway as far as highway fuel economy goes I usually set the cruise at 75. Last time I went on a road trip out to nj back in May, I averaged 42mpg with either the a.c. on or Windows partially down. That was on the way out, 500 miles. On the way back I did 39mpg. I've gotten better than 40 before on the way out to new York. Generally I her sound 36-39 though. I've got an upcoming trip to Baltimore this weekend so I'll see what I get.

Very nice. Just out of curiosity, how does one get what appears to be "next maneuver" in the cluster console, and how does one eliminate the PRNDS gearshift selection from the same display?
