Yes it is FL400S.

I got a Purolator classic at a good deal so that is what I will be using for my next oil change. Napa, Purolator, Wix, Motorcraft, or Amsoil, just pick one.

I tried to find Motorcraft oil but I couldn't so the next best thing I got was "Mobil 1 5W-20." I know the recommended is 5W-30 for mine but I tried the other to see if I could get a little bit better gas mileage out of it since the viscosity is a little less. As far as engine oils go, it doesn't really matter about the name brand as much as it does the viscosity and API rating of it. Those are what you really need to be looking for.

Dont always stick to the Motorcraft brand....its just a name...they can slap that name on anything....and now most of the stuff is made in Mexico.

I build machines that package oil filters, ive been to their plants...same dam filter just a different sticker.
Right now we are working on two machines for Champ Labs, everything from Kohler, Fram, and a bunch of other names ive never heard of.
