Chuckle - it was the Ford parts guy who sent me to Wally World when I asked for the official oil there.

Cheaper than his cost price by the quart.

Best thing to do would be to just pay to sign up for amsoil preferred customer and order 5w-50 amsoil right to your door haha. And with the preferred customer discount it's like 8 bucks a quart, so cheaper than what the dealer gives you and about the best oil money can buy.

I think you might have to contact an amsoil dealer/retailer in your area to sign up under then for your preferred customer discount but I'm not 100% sure it's been a while since I signed up I can't remember for certain.

You are doing your own oil changes correct?

Just a reminder Amesoil does NOT meet Ford spec. And WILL void a major engine warranty.
The oil fails to have the Ford REQUIRED additives.

So that you can get your Motorcraft filter with their oil.

You are sadly misinformed. Part # AMRQT-EA is made for the 2016 Focus RS. 50 weight oil.

In most dealerships, when a technician goes to the parts department to obtain oils and filters, they generally inform the parts counter person of what filter they need, what weight oil they need and what quantity of oil they need. This prevents the parts counter person from giving them the wrong oil or filter.

This is not true at all.

Whether a lubricant meets the manufacturer's lubricant specification or not, the warranty can NOT legally be voided as long as the proper oil weight is used. To void your warranty, the manufacturer has to prove, with a high degree of certainty, that the oil used failed to sufficiently lubricate the bearings and contact surfaces in the engine. As that is nearly impossible to do, the manufacturers generally won't even bother.

Motorcraft oil and filters are cheaper at Walmart.... I was paying $21 for 5qts of Motorcraft 5w20 and a Motorcraft filter at Walmart, vs $35 from the Ford dealership I used to work at.

That's only partially true. It's not the weight, it's the "oil spec". Each vehicle has it's own oil spec. BMW has LL-01 while some Ford vehicles may require WSS-M2C937A. Even if both oils were the same viscosity, you could not interchange them. A warranty can only be voided if the WRONG oil spec was used. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it so that you can legally use any oil you wish as long as it meets the manufacturer's specs. If the manufacturer "requires" you to use a certain brand oil, then by federal law they are required to provide that oil to you free of charge, per Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
