Amsoil Signature Series 0W/20 100% Synthetic in the Hemi.
Amsoil Synthetic in tranny, rear & front ends.
Amsoil EA oil & dry air filters.

WHY?:

After reading up on Amsoil & having an oil analysis done at 23,742 miles on my first oil change, my mind was made up. I became an Amsoil Independent Dealer. Also, the fuel mileage increased w/ just changing the engine oil.

I then switched the rest of the fluids and ditched the K&N wet air filter for a dry Amsoil air filter. Fuel mileage increased again. I was really impressed.

Yes, it cost more to switch over at first, but in the long run, say a year, it saves me a bunch of money. Not only did my mileage increase saving some money, I now have a guarantee and only have to change the oil every 25,000 miles. My oil w/ 11,000 miles on the since this past change is still nice and clean.

Heck, I use it in everything. From momma's car to the lawn mower.

I'm not knocking any other oils out there, and yes, I am an Amsoil dealer, but I really believe in Amsoil's products just from my own experience.

That's just my $.02 worth. Everyone else has their own opinions.

How did you get lifetime oil changes with your '08? I sure could use that. Was that an incentive offered by your dealership, or an offer I did not know anything about?

Synthetic oil is a lot better oil.
It flows better in cold,
It takes more heat for it to break down and burn,
It lubricates better for longer,
It's lasts at least 2-3 times longer then conventional oil,
In general it's a more stable, better lubricating, longer lasting motor oil.

You can use conventional. oil and Change it every 3000 miles, or you can use synthetic and change it every 9000 miles. Syn. oil will actually save you time and money and you will be using better oil in the process. It is a no brainier to me.

Just my .02 A.C.
