Great post by Davey which confirms that Dexos 2 is the oil which GM recommends.

Re: Corvette C6 oil filter and correct Oil / Owners manual


Thanks for the help, couldn’t see anywhere where it said 100%synth. Read on a US site that the gm oils semi so the Mobil one was a better oil, but might be different for the us version. Cheers for confirming for me 👍🏻.
