    If covered under a warranty, must be to GM-LL specification
    If warranty expired or no future warranty, then any synthetic oil

    However, even if covered under warranty there is virtually no way any dealership can check this (or even bother)
    I used to topup using Tesco Synthetic oil just prior to each service

    The only time the oil may be fully examined is for a complete engine claim
