Thread: GM Oil Life Monitor
08-18-2008, 07:57 AM #11
Mobil 1 15w50 extended interval oil in My '04 Suburban. I don't do 5w or 10w oils, as I feel they become piss water in the crankcase. Of course, I live in a hot tropical southern climate, where it's seldom below 70 degrees, and I frequently pull a trailer.
If I resided in a cooler climate, I'd prolly use 10w30 or 10w40 Mobil 1.
To keep this on topic, no, I don't use the the oil life monitor, and it's something I can live without. I prefer to pull the dipstick, and actually examine the oil on regular intervals, rather than trust electronics."I Hate When That Happens!"

I use Mobil 1 myself. But I still use the oil life monitor still. I have found that it has changed its self to allow for the longer oil change times. Seems bang on to me.
