With the cost of a new vett vs my age it's nice to know I've got another 700,000 miles to go .

Depending if he used the 3,000 or 6,000 oil change schedule
That would be a oil change once a month or ever other month.

I'll bet he used MOBIL 1

Yeah, I'm wondering what type of oil he used. I would think whatever it was, the oil manufacturer would be interested in this for marketing purposes.

Received this morning:


Jeff,

Thank you for your email. I have check with Mark and he did have the car regularly serviced using synthetic oil for oil changes, but most of the time he says he used Pennzoil. Hope that answer helps.

Thanks for checking on that detail.

I've used the Pennzoil Platinum lately and except for seemingly causing some minor leaks around the oil drain plugs on the C6Z, it seems like a good choice.
