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!

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

Just switched last week to synthetic oil in my V6 JGC. I feel the difference and I am not sure when I should change the oil next time

I wanted to share with you all that the dealer have offered 4 times of synthetic oil (5w30)+filter changes for $190 only , since I cannot do it myself (apartment complex ) the price is really good in my opinion.

It typically costs me $30 for 6qts Pennzoil Ultra 5w-20 Full Synthetic from Walmart. I have the dealer perform the oil change and install a new filter which costs me about $15. So $45 per oil change. 4 x $45 = $180. So, $190 is a decent price.

On a side note, it looks like Pennzoil is replacing their Ultra product with a new product called Pennzoil Ultra Platinum. "Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology will phase out Pennzoil Ultra over time."
