Time for an oil change in my recently acquired L...is there consensus on what oil to use. I'm usually a fan of Mobile 1....filter brand recommendation?

Thanks folks

Mobil 1 5w-30 and a Motorcraft filter. A lot of good oil brands out there- I avoid Royal Purple. Mobil 1 is priced right- I would go Amsoil if Mobil one wasn't such a good deal.

Rotella T6 for the protective ZDDP with a Motorcraft filter.

Looking at the list of oils used, I think you get the picture :) Just make sure you're changing at a regular interval and you'll be in good shape!

I did some research on a thread of this same question a few years back.
What I came up with is to use any major brand( and usually on sale) of synthetic but a viscosity of 0w-20w. The formulas of todays oils break conventional thinking. A 0w allows the oil to circulate faster upon start up when most wear occurs and the 20w is what is spec'd for these motors when warm or hot. Do some research your self. :smt102You may be surprised at what you find:smt023There was another member here who also used 0w-20w. I believe he was an Amsoil distr.:rockon_ford
