I have 09 Escalade and have been having oil changed at dealership. They have been using penzoil 5-30 conventional oil. I change about every 3000 miles and drive about 10-12,000 miles per year. Today my regular service manager of many years was gone and the young man helping me said I was to use only mobile 1 oil or it would void the warranty. It recommends mobile 1 in the manual but does not actually say it voids the warranty if not used exclusively. Mobile 1 is about $9 a quart at the dealership. I am going to check with the old service man when he returns. I would appreciate any other opinions or feed back about what other owners are doing. Thanks Carl

Its not required. But if you expect any better mileage and/or engine life, you should use synthetic oil.

I have free oil changes for 3 years and refuse to let the dealer do it because you have NO IDEA what they put in there.

Please do not mislead people saying you will get better gas mileage out of a synthetic oil compared to conventional.

Hey, no one's claiming giant increases in mileage, but most auto enthusiasts support the idea of a slight increase when using synthetics.

You will get a increase in mileage with Mobile one. Not misleading at all.

there is no truck and suv mobil 1, it is only the regular mobil oil(dino oil) that will say if it is truck or suv. mobil 1 is the only "one" synthetic.
