Default Chrysler ms 6395 oil certification

Any one have an idea if we should start off using Mobil one synthetic
Oil? It's being said by many that if we use it Chrysler will void our warranty since Mobile one does not meet the ms-6395 specification on sensors. Sure would like to use mobile one in my heap.

I changed to Mobile One & a WIX brand oil filter, when the special oil change price ran out

Now i buy the Mobile One at Walmart, can't beat the price anywhere, i buy three 5 quart jugs at a time
i buy the oil filter at which ever store that i pass on the way to the dealership
WIX, Carquest, NAPA Gold are all WIX oil filters

I usually buy 2 dozen assorted donuts at a good bakery, as a good will gesture
i don't believe in turning my Ram over to someone that has no extra incentive to do the job with a bit of TLC. My Ram is a major source of my income.

Penzoil platinum and ultra are both Chrysler certified and according to the Bob is the oil guy crowd better oil than Mobile 1. I use the penz plat. If I could find the ultra as easy I would use it but the only places I find the ultra is way more than the plat at Walmart.

It just seems like Mobile 1 Would get the oil certification fixed instead of lost revenue!

Mobile has stated that they are sure that it would pass or exceed the certification, as most oil brands would

they just are not going to jump through all of the hoops that Chrysler wants for certification
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
though it looks like that has changed

Question:
Mobil 1 5W-20 and Chrysler MS-6395
Why is your Mobil 1 5W-20 not Chrysler MS-6395 spec approved? Or if it is, why is the certification not on the bottle or website?

Answer:
Chrysler’s latest revision to the MS-6395 specification calls for a field trial spanning multiple seasons over two years. While we fully expect the exceptional performance of Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil to meet Chrysler’s specification requirements, at this time we are in the process of evaluating our timeline to start this testing.

So at best case it will at least two years from when Mobile 1 made that statement before I can use it without fear of ramifications from Ram over any warranty issues. I have no doubt the oil would meet the specs. Unfortunately it is up to Ram whether an engine failure while using unapproved oil would be covered under warranty. I'm not willing to risk my warranty on it while there are other oils out there that are just as good.

Don't you think that Chrysler would have to prove that Mobile One was so inferior that it caused damage to the engine ??

I an sure the warranty states that it is void if an unapproved oil is used. If you don't hand them that gun they can not shoot you with it.

i find it funny that:

in 2008/2009 the dealerships got their 5w-20 oil from Mobile Oil company
the next oil contract went to Valvoline
then -
Magneti Marelli took over the supply of parts, (including petroleum products) & the current contract is with SHELL OIL, (Pennzoil & Rotella)
