Engine Oil

Was going to do the first oil change yesterday, but problem was I could not find the rated oil anywhere!

Specs are ACEA C3 5W-30 that meets Chrysler materials spec MS-11106

or

Pennzoil Ultra Euro L Full Syn.

The closest I could find is Ultra Platinum Euro L however, it is for gasoline engines, and neither has the ACEA C3 rating nor MS-11106 rating. Further exploration on the Pennzoil website did not show such oil as described in the manual exists.

This is the only oil that I could locate meeting the specs:
Mobil 1™ ESP Formula 5W-30

Dealership, Amazon about only place to find the correct Pennzoil OR
Mobile ESP, only two here in states that meet the requirement so far.

Tim, you are correct. Those are the only two oils that I have found to meet the specs as stated in the owners manual. No where to be found locally. Internet only.

I bought some of the Pennzoil and the had a $0.20 discount/quart for fuel through the fuel rewards network program (Shell)....so I have $2.40 off per gallon at my next fill up.

OK, I will give them a try, only problem is they are a little bit out of the way. Suffice to say they are also located in areas that I like to frequent the least.

I just looked at pep boys and the Mobil ESP is $12.79/qt. Amazon has the factory Pennzoil for about $98 for 12 quarts. No tax and shipped for free.

Amazon.com: Pennzoil 550023013-6PK Ultra Euro L 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil - 1 Quart (Pack of 6): Automotive Amazon.com: Pennzoil 550023013-6PK Ultra Euro L 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil - 1 Quart (Pack of 6): Automotive

Thanks, for the link and for the Napa #s.

I was reading the review, one guy noted the oil sent to him was 3 years old and the detergents separated from the oil. He said it's okay of you shake the bottle to remix. That doesn't instill confidence in me being the oil is that old.
