I have used Mobil 1 for years in all my rigs. Lots of good oils out there, just my preference

I use Mobil 1, 5W20 Full Synthetic in my 08 Ram. From my research on the net, Amsoil and other sites, Amsoil was 1st but $$$ 2nd and 3rd place was Mobil 1 and Castrol pretty close behind. I found Mobil 1 wasn't as expensive as Castrol.

For Dodge warranty, I supplied them the Mobil 1 oil so they did the oil change and have records from the dealership oil changes where done. Plus SAVED on the oil by purchasing it on SALE.

Thumbs up Mobil1

I've been using Mobil1 for 8 years in my car and will be the only thing I use in the Ram. I only have like 500 miles on my Ram, but I already picked up 3 cases of Mobil1 from Costco.

Well as of April 2011
Shell oil won the 2 year contract with Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep
in the service bays you now are getting Pennzoil conventional for gas engines & Rotella in diesels

in 2009 you got Mobile conventional
in 2010 you got Valvoline conventional

I don't like changing motor oil every couple years
I will continue on with Mobile synthetic 5W-20 & a WIX filter

These things use oil... She told me she needed my blood, now we are bound together like in the movie Cristine. I know she loves me, she tells me so... Lol
No really... a lot of excellent oils out there. I use valvoline, but id like to try a high performance type... Royal purple, etc... Any suggestions.

^I've used RP, M1, Amsoil, and most of what's off the shelf (castrol, etc.). Really they are all about equal from what I can tell. I've used RP the least (hardest to find), M1 the most (easiest to find), but now use all amsoil because I get it really cheap. Didn't really notice any differences when switching between the brands.
