Did the spring oil change on Mr. Cash today. Great day to spend in the garage, 10” of wet sloppy snow the last 2 days, hopefully Mother Nature will turn the page for us. Anyhow, I used up my “free” oil changes from Chevy and did this one myself. Relatively simple once you can safely get under the car. Went the 0w-40 Mobil 1 ESP route with a PF64 Delco filter. Ordered all off of Amazon along with the new oil cap which is a GM part. Thanks to all who have given out good information and advice for those of us not as schooled in all things Corvette. Yet.......

How ironic...After listening to my service tech say that they use the oil that is noted on the oil filler cap and me having to persistently tell him that is not the oil that I wanted used, I order the exact same cap for my Z06. It came in the mail today.
I had a 0W-40 oil cap on my Z06 when I took it to the local dealership for an oil change. According to the receipt I was given they used the 0W-40 oil that I directed to be used. They charged $9.30/quart for the oil (GM 19353135) but somehow the oil filler cap had magically morphed into a 5W-30 oil cap when the car was returned. My fault for not checking immediately and it was over three weeks before I noticed the substitution. I'll still go to that dealership but both I and the service writer will agree that the 0W-40 cap is on the car when the car goes in for service and when the service is completed. A new 0W-40 oil cap costs $38 and I'd rather not buy another one.
Gentleben, I believe the 0-40 oil cap I purchased off Amazon was $13 and is a genuine GM part.
I'm sure that you are correct but the cap (GM 12680708) that I purchased was the one recommended by Harlan Charles, who is the Corvette Product Marketing Manager.
Unfortunately, the cap was supposed to be delivered today but the USPS says that it cannot be delivered due to an incomplete address. I will not name the supplier at this time as I will give them another (and final) chance on Monday to correct the error and send me a new cap while the original one is being returned to them via the selfsame USPS system.

Could someone post a link or item number for the cap from Amazon? Thanks!
