With a huge thanks to Rand, I have 12L of Ravenol 0w-40 for the Jeep. I noticed that the 1L bottles say Chrysler MS-12633 on them, which I thought was interesting.

Product details here: Ravenol SSL 0w-40

And a couple of pics grin

I'm a bit torn, as I have enough Castrol 0w-40 for another OCI I discovered, and then I have an OCI worth of M1 FS 0w-40, but I want to try this stuff grin Last two OCI's have been Castrol 0w-40.

Nice, can't wait for the UOA. You change it when the Jeep tells you too, right?

I used this oil back when my wife had a 100 mile round trip highway commute to work and went 10k oci. She now has a less than 10 mile round trip to work so I've went to a 5k oci with Mobil1 or castrol edge 0w-40 for the short tripping.

Yes, but I was able to cash in some travel rewards to pay for it so my total cost was $8.80 + dealing with the shipping, so I was under $100 CDN for 12L of it.

Yes, I go by the OLM, which is currently at 13% IIRC.

If I still had my forester I would be trying Ravenol in the MT. Since motul has exceeded $20/qt for gear 300.
The Ravenol J1C1000-001999q12 SAE 75W-85 Manual Transmission Fluid -
Meets GL-5 and is around $10/qt a real steal for a MT that needs api gl-5 (such as subaru where it shares a sump with the hypoid gears)

I would consider Ravenol Motor oil in the jeep but due to its "severe service" and the fact that its a Turbo GDI Motor
I just plan on changing it often with PP 5w30 (which also meets required jeep ms-13340 spec)

Cant beat the after rebate of <$3/qt on the PP either, but hey this is an oil enthusiast board

Ravenol is good stuff. I started using VMO and RUP in my VW turbo, and even in my motorbike. Blauparts has 15% or 20% sales frequently plus free shipping over $100.

OK. Does anyone want to see a UOA on the present Castrol fill too? I can grab 2x Toromont CAT UOA kits if there is interest.
