Default "extra" cost for HEMI oil change?

I got a coupon in the mail for 4 oil changes for $64.95 from the dealer I bought my Ram from. That's $16.25....a deal, really since me buying the oil and filter myself and doing it would be at least $20 I figure, plus this way keeps the changes documented for warranty.

But in the fine print it says ""Up to 5 quarts only -- extra charges may be applied for HEMI and fluid disposal".

Well, what is so special about the HEMI that there would be extra charges for an oil change???

Big giant Hemi oil plug? Sorry, don't know but I will take that nasty coupon off your hands so you don't have to look at it anymore.

OP it seems those great deal coupons never apply to anyone hahah.
I am about ready for my first oil change and was surprised to learn that the Hemi takes 7 quarts. The dealer told me it would be about $46 and TWO hours with an appointment. Looks like I'll be dusting off my old drain pan. Was thinking of going Mobil 1 and NAPA Gold, so the cost will be about the same.

Well, I emailed the service manager at the dealer I got it from and he says its $65 out the door for the 4 changes.....and they use the semi-sythetic stuff.

Seems like a deal.
