So, is it true that the only Ford certified synthetics are Mobil 1 and Amsoil?
According to the EPA mileage chart the motor oil specified is 5W20, GF-5. There are a several oils on the market that meet that specification, including at least one non-synthetic oils.
The following was posted at www.bobistheoilguy.com
"The new API SN/GF-5 5W20 motor oil now specs WSS-M2C945-A under Ford's nomenclature."
So I think the answer to your question is "NO"--I don't think Ford "certifies" any oils and I think there are many oils that satisfy the Ford specification--not just Mobil 1 and Amsoil.
