Engine oil type

Ford owner manual recommends 5w-20/5w-30 Premium Synthetic Blend and 5w-30 Optional Full Synthetic for the E-series engine. Which one should be run in a 2017 Vegas? Appreciate any info, thanks.

I have had the V10 Triton engine in a couple of motorhomes we have owned, always used the 5w20 Motorcraft Synthetic Blend Oil. These engine’s had up to 75K on them with no problems at all using this.

Most newer vehicles including the E series say which grade to use on the filler cap. This along with the owner's manual recommends 5-30 which I buy at both WalMart and Costco and gave to my RV service to put in our 2016. I purchased the oil filter from the same service. They use K&N filters. Oh yes, forgot to say that I use Mobil One oil.
