Update February 6, 2015: We now offer a synthetic 0W-40 that meets the Chrysler MS-10725 specification.

A question from a reader: “I’ve got a 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 with the 6.4L Hemi engine. Dodge recommends 0W-40 motor oil with the Chrysler MS-10725 specification. I see that AMSOIL does not offer a 0W-40 motor oil for automotive use. Do you have anything that is suitable for my car?”

Answer: Our application tool does suggest the AMSOIL “Full SAPS” European Formula Synthetic 5W-40 Motor Oil for the Dodge 6.4L Hemi engine. This engine oil meets the Mercedes-Benz 229.3 and 229.5 specifications.

So what about the Chrysler MS-10725 spec? As this engine configuration dates back to the previous relationship that Chrysler had with Daimler, Dodge will accept the MB 229.3, MB 229.5 specifications OR the Chrysler MS-10725 spec.

What about the fact that the AMSOIL product is a 5W-40 and Dodge suggests a 0W-40 motor oil? We took that question to AMSOIL Technical Services. They advise us that this full synthetic 5W-40 is perfectly fine unless the car is being started at temperatures below -40°C (-40°F).

AMSOIL European “Full SAPS” Formula 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil

AMSOIL European “Full SAPS” Formula 5W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil is recommended for 6.1L and 6.4L Hemi V-8 engines in Dodge Challenger, Charger and Chrysler 300 SRT8 models.

What is “Full-SAPS”?

The term “SAPS”  refers to the amount of Sulfated Ash, Phosphorus and Sulfur (anti-wear and detergent additives) in the engine oil. European engine oils are commonly classified by their SAPS levels: “Low”, “Mid” or “Full”. This 100% synthetic 5W-40 is the ideal candidate to contend with the heat and mega-horsepower delivered by your Hemi V-8.
