It should say into your owners manual?

5W20 Mobile One is about the best you can do. But the same grade in Valvoline etc. is plenty adequate.

All owners manuals give you the oil brand or equal to the numbers describing the type oil to use.

I suggest you read up on motor oils and your engine requirements, for the next change. There are factors that come into play, based on frequency of use, etc. Also, your chassis mfg. will tell you what is recommended for your motor.

Motor Craft SAE 5W-20 or any oil that meets Ford Spec. WSS-M2C945-A lube shop can find a comparable oil. Ford likes you to use their oil more expensive than comparable oils.
