Oil specification changed.
Posted 10 October 2016 - 07:02 PM
Evidently 0w-20 is the factory fill oil and provides up to 4% better fuel economy, the change notice hit in Q1/2016 and it's now on the Motorcraft Oil/Filter charts at the dealers.

See this post from the pinned thread on oil changes:
I think this was debated earlier in this same thread, and the below was noted in Ford's system to provide info to dealers:
SSM 44509 - 2013 - 2014 C-Max, Fusion and MKZ Hybrid/Energi - Oil Viscosity Specification For 2014 C-Max, Fusion and MKZ Hybrid/Energi, SAE 0W-20 is the initial fill oiland the recommended service oil. The oil viscosity recommendation of SAE 5W-20 on the oil fill caps on some 2014 Fusion and MKZ Hybrid/Energi vehicles may appear to conflict with the owner guide and other service publications which recommend SAE 0W-20 oil. Both SAE 0W-20 oil and SAE 5W-20 oil are approved for use in these vehicles. 2013 C-Max, Fusion and MKZ Hybrid/Energi can also be serviced with either SAE 0W-20 oil and SAE 5W-20 oil.

The two services of my 2015 FFH by my local Ford dealer, in June 2015 and Feb 2016, used 0W-20.

Looked at my receipts (local Ford dealer) and its still 5W-20 as of July. But this applies to 2013-2014 (we have a 2014). Newer Fusions probably have specified 0W-20 since manufactured.

I'm not buying the "4%" difference. Maybe "up to", but 0% is up to 4%, so yeah. At 100° C, the 0W-20 and 5W-20 are both 20 viscosity. And at say 50° C, the 0W-20 is (guessing) an 8 viscosity and the 5W-20 is maybe a 10 viscosity. (guessing, I'll bet viscosity change isn't linear).
