Triton V10 Required Oil

I thought I had the answer. But... I don't.

Anyone out there know what the recommended engine oil is for a Ford Gas Triton V10?

Most correct answer is as stated, the Motorcraft oil.

I use the Mobile 1 in everything else so to keep all the same the coach gets it as well.

From the 1999 F53 Owner's Manual:

Engine oil and filter recommendations
Look for this Certification Trademark.
(The API star is shown)

Use SAE 5W-30 motor oil certified for gasoline engines by the American Petroleum Institute (API).

Motor oil displaying the API Certification Trademark will meet all requirements for your vehicle’s engine.

Ford oil specification is WSS-M2C153-G.

Do not use supplemental engine oil additives, oil treatments or engine treatments. They are unnecessary and could, under certain conditions, lead to engine damage which is not covered by your warranty.

Change your engine oil and filter according to the appropriate schedule listed in the Scheduled Maintenance Guide.

Ford production and aftermarket (Motorcraft) oil filters are designed for added engine protection and long life. If a replacement oil filter is used that does not meet Ford material and design specifications, startup engine noises or knock may be experienced.

It is recommended you use the appropriate Motorcraft oil filter (or
another brand meeting Ford specifications) for your engine application.

I drove an 01 V10 for 8 years and 70L miles using Mobil 1 10-30. I supplanted one quart (20%) with a quart of Lucas Oil Stabilizer and when I traded it in, it was still purring nicely and never used any oil.
