Approved Lubricants

Multigrade oil is used in production for the engine for "initial fill" and this oil should not normally be changed until the first 5,000 miles (8,000 km) have been completed. The tabulated list of engine and transmission oils is divided into four categories.

“Category A”
Lubricants which carry official Ford of Britain approval, are available readily throughout the United Kingdom and are manufactured by a company supplying Ford of Britain with lubricants for production use. Lubricants in this category are listed in all Domestic Editions of Owners Handbooks, Ford Service Voucher Books and similar publications.

“Category B”
Lubricants which carry official Ford of Britain approval, are available throughout the United Kingdom, but are not manufactured by a supplier to Ford of Britain.

“Category C”
Lubricants which carry qualified Ford of Britain approval by meeting all technical requirements, but not necessarily being generally available throughout the United Kingdom.

“Category D”
Lubricants which carry qualified Ford of Britain approval by meeting all technical requirements, but being available only in European territories excluding the United Kingdom.

It does not follow that the lubricants listed under Categories A and B (C is not applicable to this model range at present) will be necessarily marketed in any Export territory or, if available under the same brand name. However, to enable you to obtain lubricants of the same specification the appropriate Ford Specification Numbers are also quoted on the following pages. In any case, temperature variations in individual territories could involve a change of viscosity rating of the lubricant concerned.

All the approved engine and transmission lubricants tabulated are miscible and compatible with one another but if, for instance, an SAE 10W engine oil were added to one of SAE 10W/30 type then the viscosity rating of the latter would be affected according to the percentage of dilution.
