    What oil have you guys been using?

    Just want to see what everyone's running and where you getting it at. No one around me and any Dexos 2 oil in stock, Wal-Mart was carrying Penzoil Euro L, but they haven't stocked any for the last 2 months.

    I'd like to know:
    Oil brand/viscosity
    Where your purchasing it/price
    Current miles
    Change Interval
    Filter brand (no one seems to be making one yet)

    I'm really looking at going Amsoil, I can get a case (12 qts) for around $109 of 5W-30 Euro formula.

    I was shopping walmart.com recently and I thought I seen the Euro L 5-30 for the diesels around $25 a jug. Ship to store is free typically.

    Up to this point, AC Delco Dexos 2 from the dealer, in our 2014 CTD.

    I have a jug of Pennzoil Euro L sitting in the basement, ready to go in, provided I can actually remove the drain plug, which as of the past two changes, has not been possible, even with a 1/2" drive breaker bar. Once I switch to that (it's making more sense, as the cost of the CTD oil change at the dealer is now up to $60 (was $40 when our free maintenance ran out, then went up to $50), so I can do it for much cheaper now), I will likely keep running that, and probably for longer-than-stock intervals.

    Last oil change was done by Chevrolet, so I would guess AC Delco Synthetic (or Blend).

    The local Walmart still has the Penzoil Euro L. Maybe they just moved it around on the shelves which they do from time to time.

    Not to hijack but has anyone skipped on their two free oil changes included in the warranty?

    Much rather change it out myself.

    I’ve been using Total INEO MC3 5W30 dexos2 registered since factory fill. Did not use any of the free oil changes that came with the car.
