Oil deal for GM dealers

Time 1:53 am, November 3, 2010

national-oil-check-weekLeading lubricant company ExxonMobil has announced it is now licensed to provide dexos2 products to GM’s dealers.

The agreement between General Motors and ExxonMobil makes the UK oil supplier the first to secure the official dexos licensing.

ExxonMobil now has two products – Mobil 1 Formula ESP 0W-40 and Mobil Super 3000 Formula G 5W30 – that are ideal for petrol and diesel engined Vauxhall and Chevrolet models.

 Introduced in April 2010, dexos 2 is a GM-developed engine oil for both dealers and consumers.

Dan McGoldrick, Mobil 1 Marketing Manager, said: ‘It is a major milestone for ExxonMobil to achieve dexos2 licensing for our products and we are extremely pleased to become the first and only major oil supplier in the UK and Ireland to receive such a status.

‘The dexos2 specifications will mean GM dealers can provide their customers with the approved Mobil oil that provides best protection for petrol and diesel engines in one single product.’

The announcement means that using non-dexos licensed oils may invalidate vehicle warranty should any damage occur to the engine.
