Looking to switch to Pennzoil 0w20 with PP technology. I will be getting the "Silver bottle", not the dark grey bottle. Would you say this oil is superior to M1 AFE, or inferior? Why? Thanks all

I dont agree with the 6 month oil changes but Chrysler is asking for it, not sure how it would turn out if any Warranty issues arose. Either way I would stick to 5w40 year round in your climate. I'm in lil ol Ohio and that's what I use. We saw lots o
