Yes - mobile one from the factory.

I'll be draining mine for some royal purple break in oil once the odo hits 500.

On a side note you can still use conventional oil if you want. It won't "harm" anything but you will obviously have to change it more frequently.

Not intentionally resurrecting a thread, but I didn't want to start a new one on the same subject.

Anybody know what the factory oil change intervals will be on the Camaro?

Or at least what they are on the CTS/STS?

Hopefully there'll be an oil life monitor. My cobalt uses Mobil One Synthetic, and i get about 8000km per change, and i go in when the oil meter hits around 15%.

Well, I'll be doing my own oil changes.
