    Thin vs Thick Discussion, Chapter 3

    Based on what I read, after warranty I may go to 10-30 for my 2021 GMC Canyon V6. I am now using dealer supplied AC Delco 5-30 and now will do my own OCI's Not sure what brand I'll use yet, but i like 10-30 over 5-30 here in Fl for those days when it's 95+ degrees. I switched my 2006 I5 canyon...

    Shell Rotella Gas Truck 5W-30 vs. Shell Rotella T6 Multi-Vehicle 5W-30 compared

    Saw it at Wally World near me yesterday. They had hardly any M1 oil at all, thats another reason why I may change to RGT.

    Shell Rotella Gas Truck 5W-30 vs. Shell Rotella T6 Multi-Vehicle 5W-30 compared

    I won't use the T6 because it's not Dexos 1 Gen2 for my GMC. I am thinking of using the Rotella 5-30 gas truck instead of Mobil1 5-30 for my 2021 V6 Canyon. I read where Rotella GT was a bit better rated than M1.

    Mobil 0W-30 @ Walmart

    There is no 5-30 M1 at my store here in Daytona, Fl area. Plenty of Valvoline, Havoline, Pennzoil and Supertech. I guess I'll use what I can find at that time of need. 2021 GMC Canyon 3.6L V6 so it needs to be DEXOS.

    Lets talk about new vehicles

    Jeep Grand Cherokee limited. We have a 2019 and it has been great. Comfortable, handles good and averages around 25MPG on the road at 75MPH It has the 290HP V6 You will like the heated seats and sterring wheel. Start it from the house and it's all warmed (or cooled) when you get in.

    What exactly is this Mobil oil?

    I believe you could be righr. The WM near me has a dwindling supply of Mobil 1 products. The only other decent priced brand names are Valvoline and Pennzoil. All three usualy around $22 to $25 for 5 qt jugs.

    When and how have you personally deviated from the car owners manual

    I have a 2019 Jeep Geand Cherokee with a V6 and it calls for 0-20 and a 2021 GMC Canyon V6 that calls for 5-30 both require synthetic. After warranty I will use 10-30 synthetic in both. Don't want any reason for a denied engine claim although oil related failures seem to be rare these days.

    Got caught my first time!

    I matched NAPA 15-40 Universal Fleet to the Yamalube and never looked back. Blackstone rep that I talked to said it would be a good oil to use as it was made for NAPA by Valvoline. Changed at 50 hours and when I sold it it was at 500 hours and never a problem. They are flat tappet engines and...

    Dealer Oil Change Jeep GC Limited

    The first 3 were free and I have only used 2 of those. The car doesn't get driven much. When I have to use the plan I paid for it is about $40 each time which isn't a lot to me so I don't have to do it. I guess I'll keep my eye on them.

    Dealer Oil Change Jeep GC Limited

    I have a plan that gives me free oil changes, it might work at other places also. It wasn't very expensive.
