'...the high prices oils do not seem to be doing any better job then the over the counter oils...'

I'll be the first to second that one. Amen. 2 Foci at well over 200K now and both use Walmart oil and forever, no synthetic. In fact, I suspect that the conventional oils now have a small amount of syn technology in them as well. You'll never get that anywhere else though, they won't say a word about it, it would shake price structure foundations.

I have an 03 Zetec and use 2 qts synth and 2 qts regular oil with a Mobil 1 hi grade oil filter. I run it for a year...don't really drive that much though. The synth blend oils give you less synth than using the 2 qts plus 2 qts method.

What I've found over the years is that cycling various oil additives such and moly...teflon...Militec through a series of oil changes tends to superlube the engine...resulting in low oil use. The Zetec engine is pretty much bulletproof if not over wrought as it were...many used engines available for little $.
