Oil for the 3.0

Just wondering what oil is everyone going to use, I have 1400 miles plus on the truck, I normally change the oil on a new ride at 3000 miles. I see a lot of dexos 1 oils but generation 2. Let me know

According to the 3.0L supplemental manual, 0W-20 to the DexosD spec is what you're looking for.

Fwiw, it's not the same oil as used/recommended the 6.6L.

Currently there are only 2 oils that been approved:

ACDelco Light Duty Diesel General Motors dexosD™ 0W-20 DD0751IA015 Global
Mobil Super 3000 XE2 ExxonMobil Oil Corp. dexosD™ 0W-20 DD0752IA015 Global

Link : dexos®

I ordered the dexos d and this is the reply that I Got

Hello and thank you for your order with GMPartsDirect.com.

Unfortunately the part you ordered is on a national back order at this time. GM has cancelled the order since there is no ETA available.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

I called Exxon Mobil they told me Mobil 1 ESP X2 0w20 was DexosD approved. Cant find any auto parts stores that stock it. Called my local Exxon fuel depot and they ordered me 2 cases. My chevy dealer doesn’t even stock the Delco oil. I don’t know what they use for oil changes on the 3.0.

Whatever is in the long oil hose going to his bay.
