I will be ordering one tomorrow, the delivery charge is $12 for Sydney.
Great! I'll go there next time. Do you think they would be receptive to offering a discount to members of Jeep Garage and the Sydney Jeep Club?

Re: Group Buy - Oil Sydney AU

i had a 1200 klm oil and filter change for my 14 srt and the service center said they would only use the royal purple oil as its been proven to be the better oil.
i picked up 12 quarts cheap to my door and as the srt takes about 6.6 ltrs im good for almost 2 changes, the seller said every 10,000klm at a minimum with this oil...


12 x RP HPS 10w40 cost $192.00 ( $16/qrt)
shipping cost $22.00
Total cost is $214.00 ( I can do $205.00 delivered )

Royal Purple is a good brand, however the SRT requires 5w40, not 10w.

Do you know what that first number means ??

It is the CCW ( cold cranking weight) of the oil and as we ( I ) dont get to a minus figure on the coldest days i dont need a lower CCW oil , i did confirm with the dealer as well, so the 10 is fine and was told i could go higher its not an issue. If i was in a -15 or more than i may need the 5W.

Re: Group Buy - Oil Sydney AU

Of course I know what it means. It doesn't get cold enough here in Sydney either.

I also know that I wont risk using anything other than recommended for my $80k + car. Especially whilst its under warranty. I'm not gonna give them any excuse to void my warranty just 'coz someone else says "she'll be right mate".

The CCW number has been debated by thousands of people on hundreds of forums.

Sure, they are a great bunch of guys but more into modified JKs and the like. Not many WK2s yet. See Sydney Jeep Club Forum - The Front Page

All good, I wasn't having a go or anything. Just saying what the manual says. If they made Royal Purple on 5w40 i'd gladly use it.

Thanks for that. Doesn't look like I would fit in much with an SRT though lol.

Re: Group Buy - Oil Sydney AU

Speaking of oils, the Pennzoil SRT 392 hemi specific oil is 0w-40, this along with Mobil 1 0w-40 were the only two oils used in the testing/development of the 392. I am using the Mobil, and changing every 5k whether needed or not.
