Well Bob, if you didn't like manufacturers 5W30 recommendations, go
take a look at, or buy one of the newer Ford Trucks -

How about a 0W20 recommendation for the gas engine F-150. A
recommendation BTW, "cast in" the oil crankcase filler cap, just in
case you should forget or doubt that Ford really, really means it!

I kind of wonder what the employees lunch room at Ford must sound like
when the accounting folks from the CAFE standard department sit down
to break a bit of bread with the bean counters and automotive
"actuaries" (if there be such an animal) from the warranty department.

Of course, maybe they really do have a new technology break through.
