That's what is says on the oil cap so I'm runnin it at least until the warranty is up... Mobil 1 Fully Synthetic.

Any difference... From what exactly do you want to compare?

Changing intervals... anywhere between 3,000 to 5,000 miles. With a clean motor like ours running synthetic, you can probably push it farther. I just baby mine and do it around 3,000.

A lot of people here run other brands too, with their opinions. I'm sure they will be chiming in

Mobil 1 and change it every 6K. The stuff's still gold when I'm changing it. I've got an '04 -- and on dino the temp gauge used to go straight up to 1/2 way. Ever since changing to syn -- it only goes up to 3/8. That is amazing.

Use oil which conforms to GM 6094M. Mobil 1 does.
