Dexos is not a scam; as much as I dislike GM, there ARE valid benefits to the thoroughness of the testing required to certify an oil meeting the dexos specs. Meaning, if you DO use dexos-certified oils, even if your engine does not require it, you can rest assured it has actually been tested instead of just having the blender "self-certify" as API allows. And as with everything you look at statistically, there is a bell curve. Some things fail at 5% life (call it 50k miles for this example), and some things fail at 95% life (call it 260k miles). But rest assured, 100% will all fail at some point. What the dexos cert aims to ensure is that the entire bell curve is not affected in a negative way by the oil (as previous tests had identified). And at this point, in both miles traveled and in threads on the same topic, why do you think you're impressing anyone? Outside of warranty, nobody, including the manufacturer, gives a flying flip what oil you use in your engine.
One would think your unceremonious entry onto this board would have made you rethink your approach before a second pass. [ignore]
