Great post Randy, I've been using Mobil 1 for years. I always change my filter w/oil changes and I use a Magnafilter at all times. The only thing that I could do better is add a duel external filter system. Magnafilter now has an inline magnetic filter for the tranny which I just got a flyer in about.

Yeah, Edge meets the ILSAC GF-4 requirement, so it's safe to use it with your Hemi.

Do the oil change sensors recognize if you use better oil? I mean if I was to switsh to amsoil would it be longer before the oil change light came on?

the dealers were using Mobile One for the bulk oil when i bought my '09
then they changed to Valvoline for the bulk oil

Chrysler just signed a multi year contract with SHELL/Pennzoil for all oil, including Rotella
They also just changed the parts supplier, it will be Magneti Marelli

i was using the Dino oil from the dealership & what ever brand is currently in nthe oil filter cannister
my EVIC came on at 2800 miles, reading due for service, see dealer

I changed to Mobile 1 synthetic 5w-20 & a Wix oil filter
i didn't change my driving style & my EVIC now shows the warning at about 5200 miles

I also changed to RP in my tranny & rear end & put a larger differential cover on, Mag-Hytec

Default Royal Purple Oil

Just recently started using Royal Purple oil. Have had good luck so far. It actually increased my mileage by 1.5 mpg. My son started using it as well and had the same results. He has 06 3.7 Ram. I have 08 4.7 Ram. I have 104,000 on mine and he has around 85,000 on his.
