I am closing in on the 200K mile mark on my 98. I am a believer in not changing what works. If the regular oil is working, don't change it.
I think the high mileage oils are just another way of the big oil co to gain another dollar from your wallet.
How many miles does your ford have on it now?
One thing I have done. 2X a year I will put in 1 quart of lucas oil treatment. My engine was getting a tad noisy for my liking. When using it, I add 5 quarts of castrol 5w20 and 1 quart lucas oil treatment. I do this on the spring, and, fall oil change. It had always worked good to tone down the noise of my diesel engines, so, I have used it for many times. Some will scorn for the use of it, but, I am happy with it.
*EDIT*- The third tool that JMC posted is the best of the crop. IMHO Fuel filters should be replaced every 15k miles as well.
