Mobil 1 0w-30
I was wondering if any of you have ever used a 0w-30 motor oil in your truck. According to Mobil's web site this oil is appropriate where ever a 5w-30, or 10w-30 is called for - it also meets Ford's WSS-M2C929-A spec, so it would meet warranty requirements. It also claims that this oil can provide better fuel economy - something all of us 4.0 guys crave! This information is taken directly from Mobil's web site...
