Like I stated before, give it time. Mobil has the funds to pay GM to get on the dexos list. The oil is new and will be on the list shortly, the GM truck/SUV market is huge and there are those out there that will run it because of the label. Mobil is not going to miss out on that market share. The only way it might not qualify for the dexos rating is if the formula is off just a bit for what Mobil will state provides better protection for it's intended use. Not stating it is a low quality oil, just that it might have a higher/lower additive, ie ZDDP or Phosphorus in it for better protection than what is required in a dexos formula.
I don't see it listing dexos1™ Gen 2 . I'm sure in time it will get approved. They just haven't paid GM yet. To many trucks on the market for it not to be approved. That is a ton of oil changes.
To me I'm benefiting from running E85 in a few ways. Burns cleaner, to me is a bonus. It shows in my used oil analysis so my oil stays cleaner longer. Major benefit if you ask me. The cost is not a wash when E85 is a dollar cheaper and my cost per mile is better than running just running 93. I would think that a clean burning fuel and a clean combustion chamber would be a benefit. As for throttle response, yeah I can see where that is in my head, but at least it seems like it to me. Do what makes you feel good, it all makes for a better life if you're happy.
Yep, problem is, mine are just LED's. No controller so they stay on all the time while driving. Not sure How I will like that at night. Would rather have a switched source that is connected to the dome lights. I just need to find the wire to tap into.
OK on my 2019 that connection is always hot. Anyone have any more suggestions. What is an easy way to test it to go off when the dome lights go off? It's just me so no other help to turn on and off things while I probe with a test light. I tried the one by the 50amp fuse and it was always on as well.
I would take a sample and send it in. That will tell you what you need to know plus you have the info to take to the dealer. I would think it is ok with so few miles but taking a sample is the best route to start off with. You have Blackstone, Oil Analyzers, and Dysonanalysis to choose from. I use Dyson because he gives great feedback in a PDF and a .wav file explaining each and every line on the PDF report he sends you. Plus you can call him with questions.
Looks like you have a good start with the window tint, vent visors. One other option is to de-badge it and maybe change out the chrome door handles for white ones along with the mirror caps. But then you have chrome wheels. Just a thought. Also level it.
BP is on the list of Top Tier fuels which is what GM recommends. It sounds like they might have gotten some bad fuel, especially if it was from a small older station that might not have a high turn over. I have never had any issues running BP in any of our vehicles. As for flex fuel. I have been running it in my 2002 Silverado for over two years without any issues. I mix it at a 50/50 mix with 93 and some times even higher ratio. Love the throttle response and smell of the exhaust. Also my 2002 isn't a flex fuel vehicle.
