I've got 1100 Km on my 2013 and I'm itching to get the Amsoil in it. Hopefully my 2 gallons of Signature Series will be here next week. Haven't decided whether I'll stick with the Mopar filter or go with an after market such as a Napa Gold or K&N Gold. Haven't read any decisive commentary on filters.

Smoother operation and increased performance, other than butt dyno, maybe. For fuel mileage, a very well calibrated calculator will measure those gains.

Hmmm, very good question? Only a salesmen would contradict his own words...

Amsoil XL 5W20 in the summer (towing season) and OE 5W20 in the winter, with Wix Gold filters all year. Changed every 5,000Km for cheap insurance.
