    We are entirely to trusting. I only let them change it threw the warrenty period.
    The ticket should show the amount, brand and grade of oil and filter. You are entitled to know what your paying for.

      It's a synthetic blend not a full synthetic but not conventional, a Ford dealer would have used Motorcraft. The 5.0 I believe uses 5w30 and holds 7qts. I change my own but that's what I do, I am a auto mechanic:)

        I'm too cheap to let anyone change my oil, but my dad taught me how to be cheap, I mean, work on my own car. I'd drive a lease vehicle if he had not done so. Takes me 40 minutes at the most, while taking my sweet time (dickin' around).

        As @65 sporty mentioned, you should have that information from the dealer. A blend can be 5% synthetic, or anywhere up from that. 30% synthetic is the maximum I heard some years ago, so don't quote me on that. I spend a few dollars more to get the full synthetic, and I try to buy it on sale.
