I'm using the Motorcraft semi-synthetic 5-20W. You can get the stuff at Walmart cheap.....about $11 for 5 quarts. I seriously doubt anyone could tell any difference whatever, between this oil, and the more expensive brands of synthetic. And pick up the correct Motorcraft oil filter at the same time for about $3.
