It’s GMs standards approval licensing. There are decently strict requirements oils must fall under in order to get the approval.
so that $10 a jug formula shell 5w30 i seen at homedepot today may not be a good choice? lol

thanks man
Yep. In my Silverado, I have Castrol edge currently but I also have 3 5qt jugs of Magnatec and 2 5qt jugs of Rotella Gas Truck to use. After that, I'll be getting the Kendall GT-1 Max in 5w30 for it. :)
And no, on these engines, OLM is basically trash. Every 5k with decent quality oil (Dexos logo/approval).
