Interesting item in Automotive News (registration required) about Ford’s F-150. It seems the automaker is now selling more EcoBoost V6-powered pickups than it sells V8-powered pickups. Definitely a sea change in the way automakers power their vehicles, but could it be an opportunity for lube operators? After all, it’s a well-known fact that turbochargers put extra pressure on motor oil. Do I hear a synthetic motor oil change calling the names of all these F-150 EcoBoost drivers?
