My father- in-law just purchased a Hemi and his first oil change is due and was wanting to go with a synthetic based oil. Would that be OK? Thanks for any input:cool:

Good question.

What does it recommend in the manual? Certainly there must be a sticker under the hood as well...

synthetic won't hurt the motor at all...if it came with natural oil i'd keep using that.....unless i was expecting to do alot of heavy towing

I would put 3-4K miles on it before switching to synthetic just to be safe and make sure the motor is totally broken in.
