Here is a spec sheet for Valvoline oils showing that they meet the Chrysler standard.

I heard the reason Mobil1 doesnt meet the standard is cause when Chrysler went into Bankruptcy Exxon was a creditor and didnt want to play ball so Chrysler turned around and says fine your oil isnt good enough for our vehicles anymore.
