I got a decent deal on Penzoil full synthetic 5w-20 and a K&N oil filter through advance a few weeks ago. The filter, 5 qt jug, (2) 1 quarts of oil and a small bottle of Lucas fuel treatment for 56 bucks if I remember correctly. Keep a close eye on the oil level in these Hemi's. I was running the dealer Penzoil dino. oil. After 4k miles, I was two quarts low. The engine responded really well to the Penzoil synthetic. Runs, idles smoother and less of the Hemi tick. I have always been a die hard Mobil 1 synthetic guy, but Mobil does not meet Ram's specifications for quality. That could lead to a potential warranty issue. On the other hand, I have proven to myself that you just can't kill an engine with Mobil syn. oil changed at 5k intervals.Several vehicles well over 100k. miles and none of them used oil or where ever touched internally.
