Default AmsOil

I would have to say AmsOil here too...been using their products for about 8 years and i love only having to change my oil 1x a year. I am getting ready to become a dealer as well for OKC. My vehicles run extremely smooth and don't have any probs in the cold weather starting up (granted it's not Alaska but still) Would love to help you out more if you'd like. Just pm me. Take care and best of luck!

so what weight of amsoil should i use? it says that their 0w-30 is the one you only have to change once a year, and get the best protection from, but what is recommended for the hemi's, and is it safe to use on the hemi's?

Default 5w-20 for MDS

I would only run the Amsoil 5w-20 if you have the MDS. You need the weight for the mds system to function properly. If have a non-mds Hemi like on my 2500 0w-30 is a great choice.
