There is nothing wrong with a Fram Ultra and meets warranty requirements.

Yeah maybe but why give the dealer an excuse just in case! Use a MOPAR FILTER while under factory warranty!

Dealers do not deny anything. Manufactures honor or deny warranty. Using a part that meets or exceeds warranty requirements does not equal excuse.

I doubt you have had any warranty work done on your vehicles. Am I correct?

Did you get the 8-speed tranny? Anxious to hear how the 8-speed and the Hemi are on fuel. Sounds like a very nice truck.



Friend of mine has one of the 8speed trucks, and believe it or not, they are not really getting any better mpg than what my '11 5speed is getting.....

I am on the second run of QSUD 0w20 in my '11 Hemi Ram, with Fram Ultra. I'm seeing ~7-8k on the oil change monitor. Seems to work fine. I may try the M1 AFE 0w20 next time around though.

QSUD and Fram Ultra is an excellent combo. Wonder if you can get 15k out of them. Not while under warranty of course. But later on.

Understandable. The reason I would like to do the UOA is to stretch my OCI's on out to that 10,000 mile mark or so if I can. I don't see any need dropping perfectly good oil.

That is exactly my thoughts. Hit the nail on the head.

If the coolant level is full and remains full you'll have no problems with coolant in the oil. If the coolant level goes down you have a leak, take it back to the dealer it's under warranty. Sorry the way I see it a UOA in this instance is a complete waste of $$. hide I'd save the money from the UOA and use it toward an oil change, we already know the wear metals will be high.

Now after the engine is broken and you've logged 15,000 miles or so, you want to do a UOA or two, then go for it. Follow the owners manual for your OCI you'll be fine for now.

Nice truck drive it in good health!


Thank you sir! And I am starting to think I will hold off for a few OCI's and let the engine really break in before I do my first UOA.

Amsoil makes some good products that's for sure. But from the price standpoint and the shorter OCI's for warranty requirements, I can't justify the price. Now after my warranty is up...that's a different story. I might go with something along the lines of the Signature Series so I can really feel confident about stretching those drain intervals.
