Hey Jerry, oh yeah, I have seen your posts about the rebate and I will be using it for my next oil change. Thanks!

PS: So what does that come out to? $30 total for 10 quarts and an oil filter?

Just looked on the net and Walmart has the specified dexos certified 5-30 Mobil 1 in 5 quart jugs for $22.88, i.e. 2 = $45.60. They allow 2 rebates of $12/jug (per person) so that is less $24 makes oil $45.60 - $24 = $21.60 = 2.16/quart. And you'll have over 1/2 quart left! I paid about ~$5 for the PF64 that was in stock. If not I have ordered from Amazon.

No need to mail anything just scan or take pic of receipt and attached on their rebate website: https://mobiloil.com/en/promotion/mo...tor-oil-coupon

They run that at least twice/year and it lasts several months each time. No idea when the 0W-40 ESP will be available at Walmsart. They have the European 0-40 for the same $22.88/jug.

Awesome deal. Just ordered a Harbor freight 3 ton low profile floor jack today. Can't wait to use it.

Here's a simple solution: If the car is under warranty, do what it says, no matter what the mileage or time. If the car is NOT under warranty, do what you want. Of course you can do what it says forever, or you can do what you want immediately, but the point is to protect the warranty because if you do not, it could cost you some serious money if GM denies coverage because you failed to follow directions. Whether the interval is "right" or "wrong" is immaterial. Besides, it's cheap insurance. Why fight it?

Twelve months for it to zero out seems about right. My OLM went from 98% to 14% in nine months with only 520 miles. When I get to work next week, I'll see if I can still access eSi and see if it defines the logic of the OLM. I know the C6 was based off of revolutions and temperature, not mileage.
