What oil is equal to Motorcraft

I've been having all my service done by a dealer using Motorcraft oil. I need to add oil in the morning and the dealer is closed till Monday. What commercially available engine oil is equivalent and compatible with the Motorcraft oil the dealer uses?

Thanks
Steve

You can buy the Motorcraft oil from Wal-Mart. Otherwise I would use Rotella.

If you really want to stick with the Motorcraft oil, you can get it off the shelf at Walmart. They sell Motorcraft brand oil and filters.

As stated above however any diesel api rated CJ-4 oil will be good to go.

When you switch brands of oil, you leave apprx. 3-4 quarts of the old oil in the system, so you are mixing oils at that point. Lots of people do it (switch oils that is)! As Mike said - any properly rated diesel oil will work.
