What oil do owners with the Ford 6.8ltr V10 petrol engine use? The handbook says to use SAE 5W-20 Premium Synthetic. Unable to find any local retailer who sells it. Any sugestions for a suitable alternative most welcome.

Hi ..

I bought 5 lt of SAE 5W - 30 today at BIG Ms for £15.99 not for the RV I hasten to add, :roflmto: but for a cheap Mondeo I bought as a runaround ..
It's called Silver Hook Zeta, semi synthetic,high performance

Hi all
10/40 semi synth is fine given we do not (yet) experiance the extreams of temps as in the US, and well within the manf spec ie oil has a spec number that is far more important than the sw numbers and you should be looking out for an Oil that meets or exceeds SJ specification I think the yanks use it as it come outa the ground:roflmto:
