Ironically, I seem to remember seeing Conoco(Motorcraft's supplier)talking about a "fully synthetic" 5W-20. I checked on their site for more detailed info and couldn't find anything else about it. And realisticaly if they do come out with a "fully synthetic" 5W-20 it will most likely be a Group III and not PAO. Because I don't think Conoco is into making PAO oil. Could be wrong through. At this point in time I believe their's and Motorcraft's 5W-20 is a blend of Group II+ and Group III. I don't think you'll notice much too difference in the two oil's performance over a 5,000-7,500 mile OCI. But I'm sure it's safe bet to say that the price of the "fully syntetic" will be substantially more than the current blend. Whimsey

Wow [Eek!] ! That be a "lot a mulla"! Stick with the regular Motorcraft 5W-20 which is a blend and probably not that much off performance wise compared to their "synthetic" oil. Walmart has the sythentic blend for $1.77/qt versus $6.79/qt at a wholesaler for the "full synthetic" [Duh!] . You be the judge, my mind is made up already, as stated previously [Roll Eyes] . And yes you can buy TRUE syntetic oils for less. Whimsey
