    Personally I run a high quality high spec oil. Dealer oil is cheap for a reason!!! I use valvoline syn power and run a 5w/40 viscosity this is slightly thicker than the GM oil but still within spec. As soon as I changed the oil from dealer for the first time and started the engine with this oil in, the difference was instantly noticeable. The engine was quieter on start up than it had ever been on the GM oil. It now runs smoother, warms up quicker and I even get better fuel economy. This oil is near £50 for 5 litres but worth every penny in my opinion

    This tbh, although I've just bought 5L of 5w30 Shell Helix Ultra stuff that's Dexos 2 compliant for £17 of eBay including delivery,
