Chevy recommends Mobil 1 0w40 ESP for the Corvette. FCA recommends Pennzoil Platinum Ultra 0w40 for any of the SRT cars including the SRT Hellcat.

Preferences?

If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

To me either is good. GM is getting paid by Mobil to have mobil products and vis versa for FCA. At least that is how I see it.

Not really brand loyal, but I'd take either.





At 6'4", I'd probably fit in any Hellcat better, but I'm not one to turn up my nose to a Corvette either.

Of the two I'd use the Mobil 1 ESP 0W40.

Because the answer is different for each.

Neither, unless I have an application that specifically requires one. And if it does, then it's usually pretty specific as to which one.

This should be good.

But I'd think that any capable 0w-40 would perform well in either.


Lates.

Is the Corvette oil the only non-boutique mid saps 0w40 available in North America?

OK maybe it is the other way around. Mobil was the least expensive oil to GM could find to purchase and vis versa for FCA?????

Neither. Mobil and GM have a partnership, just like FCA and SOPUS have a partnership. This means they work together to develop lubricants and perform lubricant testing and then the OEM will recommend their partner's product, which in turn increases their partner's sales. It's beneficial for both parties. Mobil has a similar relationship with Porsche, Mercedes AMG and a few other marques. BMW and Castrol used to have something similar but that's now changed to SOPUS.

I'd guess it's in the form of pricing agreements rather than actual transfer payments. Back in 2000s era when I was working, Mobil was used across the board in GM N America engine factory fill so GM was buying many gallons of their oil. Not sure if that continues today?
