Re: How many have switched to a full synthetic oil?

I finally did my first oil change at 750 miles on my 2014 GC Limited using Mobile 1 EP. After this I will be switch to Amsoil SSO. I have been using Amsoil on my previous car and currently on my wife car.

Re: How many have switched to a full synthetic oil?

I switched at 30k miles. I am the second owner of an otherwise factory maintained 2011 LTD, 5.7. I switched it to Castrol Edge 5w20 full synthetic. I usually use Mobil 1, but the Castrol had Chrysler's approval for use on their products.

I never had the "Hemi tick". I am still planning on changing the oil when the EVIC message displays or every 5k miles, which ever comes first. The oil and filter are still cheaper than a new Hemi!
