FUCHS Titan GT1 Pro Flex 5w-30? #4806010

Has anyone used FUCHS Titan GT1 Pro Flex 5w-30 (Dexos2 approved) oil before and if so, what have been your observations?

I have a 2018 Chevy Cruze 1.6l Diesel Ecotec (Opel motor) and approaching the next OCI - 15,000 miles. I changed my oil at the 7,500 OCI just 2.5 months ago with Penzoil Euro Platinum L (Dexos2 approved) and because I drive so much the time has come to change the oil once again. Planning on having the Penzoil tested through Blackstone to see how it held up.

I drive 90% highway miles at speeds above 70mph and now that its summer here in Florida the average temps are around 89-95F. Ideally what I would like to do is to push out my OCI from GM's recommendation of every 7,500 per up to 10,000.

This is my first time having oil tested and a lot of this oil jargon is still new to me so not even sure how to interpret the results.

Thanks for any input in advance!

I buy the Fuchs 5/40 by the drum and have never had any issues so far. I sent an analysis out a few weeks ago but waiting on the USPS to clear it, since it wasn't in a box. My buddy went 11k on it and I wanted to see how it holds up.

From the SDS: “A blend of highly refined mineral oils with multifunctional additives”

Is this stuff all GIII bases? If so, that’s kinda disappointing...

Where did you see that this is a GIII base? That pdf looks to be rather old. Reached out to Fuchs for an updated version.
