    2014 F150 Ecoboost, 5W30 Pennzoil UP - Opinions?

    "You can debate it all you want but the proof is in the pudding (UOAs). It does make a difference" I'm not trying to be argumentative for the sake of being argumentative - my fundamental question is this - if you run 87 octane and see 5+ % fuel dilution over 5000mi, and if you then run premium...

    2014 F150 Ecoboost, 5W30 Pennzoil UP - Opinions?

    Interesting - I have run several tanks of 93 octane and have not seen any measurable increase in gas mileage. As for performance, I don't drive as spirited as I used to, thus, I haven't noticed a difference in performance, either. As I mentioned earlier, I'm not opposed to shorter OCI's...

    2014 F150 Ecoboost, 5W30 Pennzoil UP - Opinions?

    Combined about 17, heavy foot around 15, highway around 20 to 22... With a disciplined right foot with combined driving I can achieve 18. However, as of late, I've had my foot in the throttle quite a bit :-D

    Folks, My name is Anthony - I'm a new member to the forum. To make a long story short, I have a 2014 Ford F150 with a 3.5L Ecoboost engine (V6, twin turbo). I'm using Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5W30 with a 5000mi OCI. I performed the first oil change at 960mi and the second at 5957mi - the UOA...

    CORRECTION/ 1. Picked up 6gal from Wally World for $27 per gallon, which seems like a good deal. ACTUALLY, I picked up x6 5-qt jugs for $27 per jug. Sorry for the confusion.
