I know the manual states to use 5w-20 but will I be fine using 5w-30???

Wouldnt recomend 5/30. The ecoboost uses a variable pressure oil pump controlled by a solenoid and works at its optimum with 5/20.

I would go with what the manual states.

Why would you want to use a different grade of oil.

Can you not get 5w20?

Say a garage put it in instead of the correct oil as stated in the manual I would be...... 'A' angry as to the reason why?!....... and 'B' worried.......Just thank your lucky stars such a thing hasn't happened, quite simply just don't go there. Why would you? Ford's advice is there for a very, very well researched reason(s), perhaps particularly so on this watch/jewel-like engine?
