    I run 100% Amzoil fluids in everything, regular filters.

    Change oil every 15k miles, filters every 7.5k.

    I change my oil/filter every 3750 miles. I having been using Mobil Delvac 1300for awhile now and have not seen any problems. For filter use, I use the Fleetguard Stratapore filter. The filter runs about $12.00, which that may be on the high end, but I guess for me, I would like to keep the engine oil as clean as possible as it circulates throughout the engine.

    Rotella only, best tobuy in Home depot 6.99 gal (wallmart use to be cheapest, but no more). Mopar filters only go on ebay and buy bulk. Don't forget PowerService, good stuff (wallmart).
