Synthetic Oils

Hey everyone I would like to get ur opinions on which synthetic oils go the best. The dealership recemends that you use 5w-20 i have found 0-20. Also I was wondering which brands do u think are the best to use.

i just follow Ford's recommendation of 5w20. keeps things nice and simple, and cheap.

I use Mobil 1 0W20 and a K&N oil filter and it seems to work well for me.

Mobile One...use it in all my cars, Escape, both Porsche's, and Focus.

However, I change mine every 6,000. Funny thing is that Porsche reccommends every 15,000 or 1 year.....I think that's crazy, but look at any P car owner's manual and it will read every 15,000. I figure double the reccomended 3,000 is good for me; but 15,000???? Who knows?

anything between 5w30 and 10w30 is all fine and dandy. I run mobil 1 my focus. synthetics all the way baby. costs a little bit more, but the engine will run better.
