Default Recommended Oil

Jim,
I have been looking for some of this info and haven't found it yet, so maybe this can help others too. Please help me with a recommendation on some of your product. I am putting about 7500 miles on per year on my 6.7 and using Ford 10w30 and Ford filter. Currently changing about every 5000 miles. I am neutral on running extended lengths, so that isn't really a selling point for me. Living in western Oregon, if it gets relatively cold here (10-20į) it isn't usually for but a couple weeks at a time.

What is the best weight and product that you would recommend? Is it going to be better in a quart or pail container? If I'm using a pail, would I then need an additional container with spout (I'm not Popeye)? Might just be easier to get quarts then? I also have an Expedition with the 5.4 3V, could I use the same oil in it? Thanks for your time.

Default Recommended Oil

Hey my friend,
Hands down, no question, these engines really love 5-40. And my 8854 has just the right HTHS to MVR sweet spot curve. They run quieter, and mitigate the tick in it. You donít have to extend the drain to use the 8854, it just is more than capable of doing so. So when you drain it youíre dumping a lot of life out. But, you always want to drain good oil. If you were taking the oil out to a year you could change the filter every 6 months and top off. Iíd feel ok if you changed it 7500 to let the filter go that long after the first change.
That same oil will work well in anything else you got. My wifeís ecoboost runs so much better on it itís dumb. Itís the only oil I use at my house and my shop. But, you could use both our 10-30s that way as well. Itís just the 6.7 loves that 5-40.

The pail is the behest value by far. But Iíve got quarts in 12 and 24 packs.

I registered and it doesn’t show price for pail. Also, how much is in a pail, 5 gallon?

Buying through the site and buying from me are different. You end up with a local rep, which is a crap shoot. I personally donít mind not getting credit or whatever on a sale. But in the end guys in here that buy off the site and need help generally come back to me because the local reps arenít knowledgeable about this subject. Then I have to shore up something at a cost to myself. I also pay out of my pocket for the sponsorship of this forum, LE does not.
I also run specials that the other reps can not or choose not to honor.
The 8854 is 155.70 for the pail. Which is 5 gallons.
Most of my customers go 10-15k with filter changed every 5k. The analysis even on the most abused trucks are coming back amazing adhering to this pm.

For what it's worth...

LE is in my back yard. Literally 30 miles from my house. And I'll continue dealing with Jim due to his knowledge on the products specific to out vehicles.

Didn’t realize Jim; I’ll be buying through you. Just changed the oil, next time around.

No worries my man. I havenít really stated my position very strongly recently. But after arguing with a rep about one stupid analysis kit for a forum member after they did absolutely nothing to get the customer I think itís time for me to be a little bolder in my stance.
Just let me know how I can help.
