I bought two 5-gallon pails in Whitehorse when I drove through a couple months ago. I'll be running it starting with the next oil change.
I also installed my block heater last weekend on a day that started in -26 degrees F and never topped 0 degrees F. Huge shout out to @STIAJW for his detailed write-up. Took me a bit, but I finally figured out how Ford wants the block heater cord routed.
Yeah I'll get getting a oil change tomorrow , iv been wanting to run t6 for awhile but didn't drivw it enough to be able to justify , but will be using alot this year, can't wait to see if I notice a difference, mine came factory with a block heater
I did my switch to 0W-40 about 2 weeks ago as we have not topped 0 deg F for almost two weeks and have dropped as low as -45F. I try to conserve mine because it is exceedingly difficult to find in my state; when it is available, it sells for twice the price of 5W-40. So a 5-gallon pail that sells for CAD $189 in Whitehorse (0W-40 and 5W-40 are the same price) sells for the equivalent of CAD $469 at my local Napa and is unavailable at Walmart. By comparison, 5W-40 T6 can be purchased for the equivalent of CAD $209 for a 5-gallon pail.
Needless to say, I stock up on 0W-40 when in Whitehorse.
