    So everywhere I go, they sell a 5qt jug of dexos Pennzoil Platinum with dexos (what I use). However all the 1qt jugs don’t have the dexos label. Pretty confused, I’m sure it doesn’t matter, but has anyone ever noticed this. (They do sell the 1qt jugs with dexos online). I know it’s a GM thing, but my question is...is it ok to put 5qts of dexos and 1.2 qts without it?

    Dexos is a GM standard, just like API is a standard as long as you use oil with API certification you will be fine

    Would not work in a 3rd Gen as there is no 0W-20, plus Mobil 1 is cheaper anyway as you can get it at Walmart for $23 and cash in on the $12 Rebates.

    Why? Dexos does not harm anything what so ever. All it is a GM oil rating for GM trucks and cars. Most oils you find have the rating now.

    The horsepower difference would be incalculable, let alone register on a butt dyno.
