Whenever they have motor oil on rebate at Menards, I always stock up.  With all the options, I am curious what everyone uses with their Triton V10 engines.  I am interested in what weight you use and if you use conventional, blend, or full synthetic.  Also, if you have a favorite brand oil, I am interested in that as well.  I am sure there is lots of great advice on this question. 

Thanks!

I change my own oil with Mobil one premium synthetic 5W20.  We use our PC winter and summer.

Ford Motorcraft synthetic blend.  5w20.  A mechanic whose opinions I trust said there was no reason to spend more on a full synthetic, and that the V10 was built to operate with the Motorcraft blend.  Oil which is quite a bit cheaper than full synthetic, particularly when I locate the 5qt containers on sale, and stock up.  But, to each their own.

I voted.

I always put in 5W-20 per Ford's recommendation in our 2007 owners manual.

I use full synthetic because the "sale" price of full synthetic has come down to within $1 of conventional oil.  I buy it on sale for less than $3 per quart, most often Valvoline or Quaker State brands, but I have used other brands too.

I change the oil before we leave on the next multi-week trip.  Our PC oil & filter changes are generally at one year and 5000-6000 mile intervals.
