unless the motor has been rebuild with tighter clearances don't go thinner than what Ford says to run. EA-EB1 3.9L ran 25w50. EB2-EL ran 15w40. AU ran 10w30

The guy at supercheap is knob. You use Xw40 (15w40, 10w40 5w40 0w40) in EB to EL

You can go thinner but the engine may burn some oil. I use 0W20 in my AU
