Synthetic is great and doesn't break down, but it does get just as dirty(silicon in oil analysis) as dino oil. For extended change intervals, a centrifuge or 1 or smaller micron bypass filter is essential. A stock filter is 20 to 40 micro. Changing the filter will not remove the small stuff. Oil sample is the only way to know the condition of the oil. Periodically, they'll add a little fresh oil, usually filling the bypass filter is enough, for refreshing the additive package.

If you are not aware of the quantity of oil required for the 5.7 Hemi, check your owner's manual. I believe it is 7 quarts, but as I said, make certain because overfilling is as bad as not enough.

Amazon carries Mobile 1.

It was 85 and a shower in FL. The band of really heavy weather is north of us. But the 2500TS is probably under the same pile as yours. It won't be long now!
