I'd guess that most of us don't have a clue as to what sort of oil they put in at a service - let alone whether it's the right sort.

Never confuse Oil at main dealer oil change prices with a single glass of something from a nice chateaux at the same price per 250ml glass.

My local Ford dealer does not use Ford oil-they use Shell-presumably cheaper when they buy in bulk.It's not even the correct spec. for my car but it is shown as an alternative if the correct spec. is not available.They use 5w/30 rather than 5w/20 which has been the spec. for at least four years.I do notice that many of the smaller sellers still show 5w/30 for my car presumably because they don't sell 5w/20.

Is it 5w20 they're using in imploding 1.0 litre turbocharged engines?

Just saying like.

Makers don't always get it right, and there have been many instances of service requirements being revised when failures have shown the original recommends didn't give a respectable service life.

Yes, I believe they use 5w20 in the 1.0T Ecoboost. Although from the photo's I've seen of heads melting inside the ports I'd say it was poor head design and/or incapable cooling system.

Careful now GB, You'll have one or two of the backroomers blood pressure increasing with talk like that. :-)

Ford recommend 5W/20 for all gasoline engies except the Fiat(Mk.2 Ka)-not just the 3 cylider.
