    It would be great to get unused samples of each of those oils tested. I not doubting you Howie12. Did you change your own oil both times or did the dealer?If you didn't do the oil yourself, did the dealer put the wrong oil in previously? There is a trend of uninformed dealers/lube techs...just saying.

    Hershey,

    I did not change my own oil. The dealer I bought it from did.It is not a large dealership and is outside a town of 8000 or so and the owner is on the floor everyday. They used the correct Mopar PArt numbers and I went to the parts counter and watched them pull the oil and give it to service. I did not wartch them open the bottles and pour it in the engine. I am confident, but not 100% certain that I got the correct oil for my two changes. As to what the factory put in I cannot comment. But will say that the testing results on all the first change oils look similar when you only look at the additive metals and that would indicate they are all the same. I have no reason to doubt the Oil Analyzers technician that says it is clear from the additives metals that the factory fill is different from the Pennzoil Ultra Euro L.

    I looked on BITOG for a VOA of the Penn Ultra Euro L 5W-30, but couldn't find one. I have a half quart left from the first oil change. I might send it off to Blackstone for a VOA if they haven't already ran a sample of it.

    When I worked at Ford, engines came preassembled on a subframe assembly ready to install with 6 bolts. They were shipped full of oil from the engine manufacturer. GM is the same way so I imagine Dodge would be as well.

    I just got off the phone with Alex at Blackstone labs. His opinion on the two samples that I've sent in was that the factory fill was not the same oil as the second sample that I KNOW was Pennzoil Ultra Euro L 5W-30. They do have a VOA of Pennzoil Ultra Euro L 5W-30 for reference.

    This is disturbing - what oil are they putting in these engines if it's NOT Pennzoil Ultra Euro L 5W-30? There was but one or two oils in the U.S. That were approved when the 2014 engines were installed in our trucks! Does the dealer add oil once the receive the vehicle from the factory?
