hi i've got the same car as you and just bought from Halfords 5w/30 ford recommended oil look on the halfords website put in your reg number and they will recommend the oil for your car,as far as i can tell its the same as the Ford oil but much cheaper and bears the Ford logo.Ive just tonight completed a 1500 mile journey no problems but do make sure you get the oil filter changed as well this is essential in my view

5w-30 is correct.

if you would like the oil that ford use get semi-synthetic 5w-30 formula-E

you can buy it from the ford parts desk and its no more expensive then good oil from halfords (£25.99 for 5 litres)

however any 5W-30 oil that conforms to ford specification WSS-M2C913-B will be fine

this has already been discussed in detail, see here :D
