Your engine has been designed to be used with Castrol and Ford Engine Oil, which gives a fuel economy benefit whilst maintaining the durability of your engine.

Topping up the oil: If you are unable to find an oil that meets the specification defined by WSS-M2C913-C or WSS-M2C948-B (gasoline engines only), you must use SAE 5W-30 that meets the specification defined by ACEA A5/B5.

Using topping up oils other than the one specified can result in longer engine cranking periods, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy, and increased emission levels. Castrol engine oil recommended.
