the 12 OHV's 4.2V6 is easy on oil. I would get Motorcraft Blend at Walmart for $11.50 and Motorcraft filters for $3.50 and use them for your reccommended manual OCIs. This engine & oil/filter combo could easily do you 5000mile OCIs for only $15!

thanks! Trying to decide if a good Dino will be ok for 3000 mile oci's.
Your motor is easy on oil. Dino oil will go past 3000 miles. But if 3000 miles is your comfort zone, stick with it.

Great advise, and for a $15 OC how can you go wrong!
