100k miles. Been using Mobil 1 since 55k. Oil changed every 7500 miles which pretty much follows the computer.

Shell Rotella Gas Truck 0w20 now but I was running Pennzoil Platinum 0w20 on my first two oil changes, and ran that in my 2015 HD and the Euro L for my Colorado Diesel.

I was using Mobil 1 0W20 since I picked up the truck at 13k miles. I just recently switched to Shell Rotella Gas Truck 0W20 at 43k miles since NAPA was running a great sale. Bought 3 sets of oil so that will cover me for the next 15k-20k miles. Planning to try Amsoil but between having to order it and the Rotella being readily available at NAPA, had to pull the trigger and try it out.

I was using Mobile, recently switched to Supertech 0-20 Dexos approved. $15 for 5 quart jug as apposed to Mobile @ $25. OP, just get any brand you like as long as it's Dexos approved, there's not enough difference to loose sleep over.

I just ignore the OLM, GM has their schedule, I have mine.

The 12 qt boxes of Mobil 1 have been on sale at Wally's.

$20 a box. ( It's in a bag inside a box) That's pretty hard to beat I don't care where you live.

I did Driven DI30.  saw some racers using it, says has good protection against some of the downfalls of direct injection engines.

I keep forgetting to check if dexos approved, worst case I lose a lil fuel economy.

 

Did oil analysis on factory oil on first change, will do another oil analysis after oil change coming up, see if there's any difference in contaminants.

 

I'm going off the computer as well for oil change intervals.

 

I plan to post report comparison.
