Best oil for Hemi with MDS. regular...semi-synthetic...full synthetic?
 
Well I am just curious, I have read some conflicting write ups. If anyone is well educated on the matter, or not, please post some advice.

For 09/10 Hemis with MDS, what brand oil do you recomend/use?

What type as well?

Also should I change my oil when i get to the 500 mile ar 1000 mile mark since its a new truck, ya know like you do on a new bike engine?

(First new vehicle)

Using the correct viscosity is most important with the Hemi because of the MDS and VVT systems. Mypersonal recommendation is Mobile 1 5W-20 synthetic. You can run dino oil if you prefer, it's totally up to you and won't have any effect on your warranty. If you want to change your oil at 500 or 1000 miles that's fine but it's not required.

The good book says (owners manual) 5w-20 and it does not matter regular or synthetic. If you have a preferred type use it. Like Rammerson said viscosity is the big thing with MDS.

You can use whatever brand you want, as long as it's 5W-20. Like Randy says, it won't matter when you change the oil, and you can switch to syn whenever you want since the factory filled oil is actually a synthetic. I run full amsoil and fully endorse it to everyone if you have a local dealer. Other good synthetics are Mobil 1, Royal Purple, and Castrol.
