    Mobil 1 0w-40 or Pennzoil Ultra 5w-40; depending on which one is cheaper at the time of purchase. Amazon has a pretty decent deal for 6 quarts of Pennzoil Ultra 5w-40 (the amount the Hellcat requires) for around $40.00-50.00.

    I would have gone that route but have some gift cards to turn in to Walmart making oil and filter $27 (this will be used on the 392, however, same oil requirements as the Hellcat minus 1 quart).

    Let the dealer do the first oil change, they'll send you a discount coupon

    My SRT8 requires 0-40.
    Interestingly enough, it came out branded as "SRT Oil " and since changed.

    I went to pep boys and was looking at the mobil 1 full synthetic 0-40W and it was labeled 'European Blend' WTH? It was the only 0-40W they had.

    Not sure I agree with them charging 180 for an oil change.. seems like it would cost close to the same as any other car, with the extra being for the oil

    Yeah, especially since it doesn't take as mch as the 392. I guess cause it has 2 drains??? The labor to unscrew 2 instead of 1... Lmao!:D

    My dealer doesn't use Pennzoil Ultra and it's not that easy to find. With my SRT I buy it by the case on line and have a mechanic I've been using for years change the oil. But now with the extra steps required for the HC oil change I'm not so sure.
