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


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

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.
Pep Boys carries Mobil 1 ESP. I bought some there.
I have one 5 miles away. I don't get that way very often however I'll give them a try.
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
Picked up my ED yesterday and am familiarizing myself with the information that comes with it. Mine has a yellow "Addendum" for the engine oil and DEF capacity. It lists the oil capacity with filter 10.5 qts and it list the oil as follows, "SAE 5W-30 Synthetic, API Certified Low Ash."
Can you scan or post a pic of the addendum? Thanks in advance!
Might have been a late addendum however they should have been mailed to current owners who may not have received it.
Interesting. The product spec sheet has a 2/2012 date. Maybe the product has been updated since then?

The Tech sheet also says this....
"Reduces exhaust filter blocking"
