Wife's car, 2015 Chevy Impala 3.6L Direct Injection V6 spec'd for D1G1.

Out of warranty with over 120,000 miles.
120 miles a day round trip 5 days a week to and from work, plus weekends to ball games and/or shopping, usually minimum 120 miles round trip.
95% highway miles 70-75 mph.
9000-9500 usual oci's per OLM.

I have several jugs of CJ rated T5 Rotella 10/30 in my stash for my old 82 GMC pickup.

Would you run an OCI or 2 in this car with this oil?

Thanks!

Tad heavy on the HTHS - it should be fine. IIRC this engine has cast-in-head exhaust manifolding. May HELP.

There is a possibility it may be sluggish around town as I assume GM uses a hydraulic VVT cam phaser?
