I still belong to the Escape owner forum and just found out that Mobil 1 has another rebate going on right now. I've done this twice so far, and if you use Mobil 1, it's a great deal. I'm not computer savvy enough to put the website here, but if you search for Mobil 1 oil rebate, you'll find it. A five quart jug of Mobil 1 is about $22.00 at Walmart. Mobil 1 is offering a $12.00 rebate. That's 5 quarts of Mobil 1 for $10.00. You can't beat that.

Thanks for the tip. For some reason my dealer says to stick to the synthetic blend for the 2.3 Ecoboost. I believe in Canada synthetic is the factory fill (I'm in the US)

Motorcraft SAE 5W-30 Premium Synthetic Blend Motor Oil is the recommended oil for the 2.3L MKC for all of North America.

There is no reason to recommend a synthetic blend over a full synthetic.
Take it up with the engineers at Ford/Lincoln, they have the data to back up their recommendation and you have what to support your claim?

This is from page 341 in your owners manual.

Motorcraft SAE 5W-30 Premium
Synthetic Blend Motor Oil or
Motorcraft SAE 5W-30 Full
Synthetic Motor Oil

Ford does not recommend synthetic blend over full synthetic. I have not contradicted anything from Ford. There is no reason to choose synthetic blend over full synthetic. Full synthetic is always preferred. Any dealer that says otherwise is just wrong.

I got two free oil changes over the first two years so of course Ford would use the the cheaper semi-synthetic blend over the more expensive full synthetic It has nothing to do with engineers, as long as the oil weight is same. Next one on my own - Mobile 1 full synthetic.

I bought 2 5qt jugs of Mobil 1 at Wallmart on August 8. Cost me $44.00 for 10 qts. Got my rebate check today for $17.00. Ending up costing me $27.00 for 10 qts of Mobil 1. That's $2.70 a qt. Can't beat that with a stick!


( I only got $17 because it was on one receipt)

Wal-Mart is not listed as a participating retailer. I'm surprised you got it. It does not matter that it on one receipt, I submit it that way all of the time. The rebate is for $12 for 5 quarts of Mobil 1 (up to 10 quarts), or $17 for 5 quarts of Mobil 1 plus a Mobil 1 oil filter, or $10 for 5 quarts of semi-syn or $7 for 5 quarts of conventional oil. Not sure how you ended up with $17 if the receipt had 2 x 5 qts of Mobil 1 on it?

Not sure either. This time I bought a 5 quart jug of Mobil 1, a 5 quart jug of Mobil 1 high mileage, and 2 Motorcraft filters. They sent me $17.00. By the way this is the fourth time I've done this (they usually run several rebate programs a year). Wall mart isn't listed, but that's where I bought my oil each time, and still got the rebate.

Your rebate should have been for $19 then. But the rebate submission form doesn't allow for mixing rebate values. Weird.
