Where can 0w20 motorcraft oil be purchased?  I remember seeing it available ~ 1 year ago, but now even on amazon and online, only 5w20 is available.  Interesting 0w20 is so rare since the cmax manual recommends it specifically.  I'm ok using full sythetic brands, but prefer to try motorcraft's blend (if it's even available!).

 

Thanks,

Greg

Use Mobil 1 instead of Motorcraft.  At least once a year, Mobil 1 has been offering significant rebates on a 5 quart jug.  Watch for posts as to when.  IIRC, the last rebate ended in May.  Walmart generally has the best price on Mobil 1.

 

Dealer is probably the best bet for Motorcraft 0W20.

If you change oil yourself it only takes 4.5 quarts, save the half quart for next time you will only need 4 quarts. :)

Where can 0w20 motorcraft oil be purchased?...

Amazon? Search "MOTORCRAFT-XO0W20QSP-SAE-0W-20-GF-5" and you'll find it.

Amazon? Search "MOTORCRAFT-XO0W20QSP-SAE-0W-20-GF-5" and you'll find it. 

Interesting that it wouldn't "populate" it when only searching on 0w20...but would readily link to 5w20 (which used to be the cmax standard).

Better though is that on Amazon, it says the 0w20 "does not fit your cmax..."  Interesting, although it does.

My 2013 was spec'ed for 5W20, not 0W20 as you note. A great similarity in specs for 0W vs. 5W, combined with the uproar over MPGs, led to a change that not every souce picked up. 

 

That said, I've gone back to 5W20 because I had high fuel levels in the oil with 0W20. I'll be testing soon, and will report back what I find. 

 

Have fun,

Frank
