2019 ford v10 mobil 1 oil

I use mobil1 in all our vehicles and have for yrs. we put about 3000 miles a yr on out 2019 class c using mobil1 5w30. I feel it is a waste of good oil to change orly with only 3000 miles of yrly use. it is not a $$$ issue just seems a waste of oil that is good for 10,000 to 15,000 miles. any comments.....

Stay within Fords recommended schedule.

Other then that, any oil that meets specs is fine.

The V10 engine, especially the 3-valve version, has sensitive oil passages that if sludge forms, the engine suffers.

With that understanding, for our 2007 E350-V10, I use various brands of full synthetic 5W-20 (weight is spec'd) of whatever brand I find at a good sale price. To-date, I have been using Ford Motorcraft oil filters. I change the oil just prior to our trips which vary between 4500 and 6000 miles.....6k is over my preferred 5k mark, but it's mostly cruising highway miles so I am okay with going over by that much as the trip unfolds.

So there you go.

My comment to the OP.....buy other brands of more affordable full-synthetic oil and change the oil annually as you are currently doing. Regarding the weight of the oil, I recommend you follow what is in your owners manual. I don't know if 5W-30 is right for a 2019-V10.

My 2016 built F53 V10 gets its Mobil1 5w30 and Motorcraft filter changed every 5000 miles or yearly, whichever comes first.
I do not run 5w20 since the spec was changed back to 5w30 and I'm mostly in hot climates.

I can see your logic.

The V10 Triton family like a quality synthetic is the 5w-20 to 5w-30 range..based on temp and the forever changing of oil updates..
these motors work hard ..

I have faced the same deal at times, 2600-3500 miles all year and time to store RV

I follow one rule, dont let old oil sit in a motor.. the debate can carry on since modern motors a a bit cleaner..and most modern oils are very good..

If there is less than 2000 miles and I am storing it from November to march.. no biggie.. I will also fire mine up on a nice winter day when I run genny.. ..get it warm etc,,

I lucked out this year, I have 5200 miles on oil, it was all open highway.. PA to IOWA, PA to OH and some shorter local trips.. my first trip was PA to AZ and back, that was enough to change on return..
So I winterising and changing oil this weekned or next.. Genny only has 16hrs on oil so it is good..
Since mine is a 460 older,, It gets 5w-40 truck oil or a Euro oil.. IMO it works well in cooler tempsa nd holds up to those hammer up hills when warm

Enjoy the RV life dont fret on oil..

I have a different philisophy regarding "the changing of" motor oil.

I change the oil just prior to a long trip. This means the last long trip's oil sits in the bottom of the oil pan, sometimes for a year or longer.

What harm does old oil do to the oil pan? I would rather change the oil just prior to a long trip rather than take a long trip with fresh oil that sat in the oil pan for a year or longer.

When I change year-old oil, I first drive the rig 12 miles to church, then back home and drain it hot. I assume my practice helps to remove accumulated moisture in the engine.

Manual states on ours to change the oil and filter at 7500 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first. We never hit the mileage mark so it gets changed annually. I'm not at all worried about storing with old oil so changing at the first of the year gets it ready for camping the rest of that year.

On oil, I had used the Supertech brand conventional since new. The conventional is no longer available so I now use the cheapest synthetic I can find. Supertech has again fit the bill, at least so far!

I change our oil at ~6000 miles or once a year. I go with Mobil One High Mileage 5w20. Like Ron, if we are planning a long trip I will change it before. Advanced Auto Parts or AutoZone usually have a special going, this year I got 5 gallons and a filter for $39. Still needed another quart but I had one onboard.
We have 110K miles on the clock and the V10 still purrs like a kitten. I have not noticed any excessive oil consumption.

All engines burn oil, they replace it with contaminates. Some of those are acidic. That's why you change before storing not after. Just the general theory.

I drive mine about 4,000/year. I change the oil and filter once a year with Mobil 1. Would not do anything else.

I have not had to "not change" the oil yearly on my F53, but lately I leave my Mobil-1 in the corvette when I don't hit the mileage for the year. I figure it's engine computer knows when it wants the oil changed, and it does not consider time in its equations, but engine use and temp parameters. So If I did not hit the yearly mileage goals, I would leave it in until I did.

Just my opinion, on my stuff. You do what you want. I have not seen any issues whatsoever.
