    Capt, the only minor downside is that it's 10 services for 60 months so I change the oil twice a year whether I need it or not. Going in for change #3 at 19k miles.

    Per the Ram dealer in Minneapolis (Burnsville Dodge) I asked about Shell Oil and they said it applies to the 2016's left on the lot and all later builds, because they have to reprogram some software to compensate for the 15-40 weight oil. This came from the service writer, but sounds like a bullshit story to me. Awaiting your comments.

    I hope they aren't using the 15-40 as it should be 5-40.

    The flash applies to 2016, the oil is changed on all 3.0l ecodiesel..check out I think it's version 7 of diesel supplement for 2015s.

    Yes, the spec has changed fin the 2015 supplement. I'm going to ask for the Rotella and even see if I can get a few more changes since the cost of the oil change has dropped.

    I too had the exact same experience you had at my dealer Thursday. I did not notice the invoice stating 10-30 was used until I got home, it said Rotella in the orders. I went back the next morning, the service advisor thought maybe what you described happened, but the said he would check the hand written log. He immediately came back and showed me the tech had in fact used 10-30 Pennzoil. He pulled my truck in., drained it and put in Rotella. Check it out if you really want Rotella, unfortunately the techs don't always follow the "special' orders.

    Just a point - my invoice read as the same item # as my last oil change, which was with the Penzoil. Not sure if that is just dealer code for the specified oil?

    I doubt that's standard at all dealerships. My dealer was very clear in telling me they had no oil change deals for EcoDiesels.

    What I meant was that the service warranty is standard Chrysler and available to all dealers, it reimburses the dealer up to $50 per service. In my case the rest is charged to the sales dept. I purchased this *after* the deal on the truck while talking to the business manager. I also purchased the "refundable" extended warranty which again is a standard Chrysler policy. The difference in my case is that my dealer was interested in giving me a deal to keep me coming back....can't speak for others.

    I e-mailed FCA Canada about what oil I can use in my 2014 ecodiesel. . They replied I could use either the Penzoil euro spec 5w 30 that I have been using, or Shell rotella 5 w 40., both are acceptable. They did not mention that a refllash is required.. Shell rotella will be going in next oil change

    That makes sense right? I mean they didn't notify us of a TSB or even send us a copy of the updated supplement. More than likely it's just a move by them to save money on stocking the oil.
