Update # 1 August 2016: FCA changes motor oil spec and viscosity requirements for Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee Models with EcoDiesel engine

Update # 2 August 2016: Oildepot offers new oil filter for EcoDiesel engines in Canada and United States

We have great news for Canadian and US Dodge EcoDiesel Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel owners!

We will soon have a synthetic 5W-30 engine oil for the new Dodge Ram and Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel 3.0L V-6 engine. The AMSOIL Low-SAPS European Formula 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil is being reformulated to meet both the ACEA “C-3” and Chrysler “MS-11106” specifications. The EcoDiesel engines require an engine oil with low levels of sulfated ash, phosphorous and sulfur (known as “SAPS”). This product will be a high quality substitute for Mopar MaxPro 5W-30 Synthetic Diesel Oil (part # 68231014GA) Pennzoil Ultra Euro L 5W-30 and Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30.

This product will also be receiving a name change. Effective December 1st, it will be called “European Formula 5W-30 Improved Emissions System Protection Synthetic Motor Oil” (product code: AEL).

When Will This EcoDiesel Oil Be Available?

AMSOIL European Formula 5W-30 Improved ESP Synthetic Motor Oil will be available in US gallon jugs on December 1st. The quart bottles will be available as the old formulation sells out (projected to be sometime in January 2016).

We also hope to have an oil filter to go with this oil in the near future. Please check back with us in early 2016 or contact us and get on our EcoDiesel mailing list.

Why Is A Special Oil Needed For the Ram EcoDiesel Engine?

The “SAPS” additives of improper motor oils can have adverse effects on the precise emission components on these trucks. It is vital that Dodge and Jeep EcoDiesel owners stick with motor oils formulated specifically to meet the aforementioned Chrysler MS-11106 and ACEA C-3 specifications.

How Can AMSOIL European Formula ESP 5W-30 Synthetic Oil Benefit My EcoDiesel Engine?

  • Synthetic wear protection
  • Low friction for maximum efficiency
  • Designed for turbocharger protection
  • Easy Cold temperature starting  (cold-pour-point of -51°C)
  • Stable oil temps when dealing with high heat and heavy loads
  • Maintains its 5W-30 viscosity over the length of the OEM service interval (will not thin out)
  • Compatible with sensitive Dodge EcoDiesel emissions equipment

How Long Can I Go Between Oil Changes With This New Oil?

AMSOIL European Formula 5W-30 Improved ESP Synthetic Motor Oil should be changed at the interval prescribed by your owners manual or by electronic oil life monitoring systems.
