I picked up six quarts today at my local Wal Mart for my 2016 Chevy Colorado. You have to look close under the Dexos 1 symbol but it indeed says Gen 2 approved.

Besides the fact it’s hardly on anyone’s shelves, one has to wonder if Ultra is really worth the extra cost and time to locate? My opinion is that it is not. PP dexos gen2 looks pretty impressive on paper.

Is there a new spec sheet for D1G2 to reference? I did not find one on their website.

Thank you. Anyone know the link to the 5w30 D1G2 spec sheet?

The site appears to be restricted to certain individuals. We got the link from a generous poster. Another poster here is sending in a sample of the 5W30 for analysis so we should know soon.

That's a nice theory but there's no way to no for sure. If it's not on the bottle, you're just speculating.

Found the following spec sheet that references D1G2 for 5w30 PP, notice the viscosity drop:

So I guess the main question is, did anything change with PP to make it D1G2 licensed, or can we assume PP bought this year would in theory pass the licensing requirements.

Looks like the perfect 0w-20 to me...

I've been going around different Walmart stores in Oklahoma City area. So far I've found the following Dexos 1 Gen 2

Valvoline Full Syn
Mobil 1
Castrol Magnatec (haven't seen any Dexos 1 Gen 2 Castrol Edge)
Quaker State Full syn
Pennzoil full syn

I've only seen Valvoline & Mobil 1 at every store I've been to that are Dexos 1 Gen 2 certified. I recently bought a 2017 Malibu 1.5L. The QS/Pennzoil/Castrol Magnatec are very hit & miss.
