Hey peeps,

What kind of oil will I need for a 62 plate Zetec with the 1.0 L Ecoboost engine with stop-start?  I know it'll have to be fully synthetic but is there anything in particular to go for?

Cheers,

Mart

5w-30

**Edit**

Sorry, meant to have typed 5w-20 :laugh:

The handbook also lists 5w-30 but as others have said, the 5w-20 is the recommended type.

5W-20 according to Fordparts........ http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_5w20_ecoboost_magnatec_oil_5ltr__f_1009373_c_1044.htm

and also discussed here .....

Ford recommend the 5w/20 to try and keep the emissions, and therefore the car tax band, as low as possible.  Peugeot are also big fans of doing the same throughout a models life, knocking nealy 10g/km off the 107s emissions during its lifespan by changing only the lube.  

 

I'd be quite happy running an ET on either if I owned one.  Allowing the motor to get fully up to temp before booting it hard will make a far greater difference to longevity than a 2 degree C viscosity change. That said, 5w/20 would be better suited to engines used for short urban journeys on cold motors.
