GM's relationship with Mobil 1 has been re-kindled, returning to the past of all Corvettes in recent history, save an except the last year or two when GM used Dexos 1 as its factory fill. As we remember, all C5 Z06's and C6Z06's used Mobil 1 oil. All Z-51 StingRays will now use Mobil 1 also.

Building on a 21-year lubricants relationship with ExxonMobil, Chevrolet also named Mobil 1 5W-30, which meets or exceeds GM dexos1® specifications, as the recommended service fill for all Corvette models. In addition, for on-track and high-performance applications, Chevrolet is recommending owners use Mobil 1 15W-50 to ensure full engine protection and optimal engine efficiency*.
“It is a testament to ExxonMobil’s commitment to advanced lubricant technology that Chevrolet has chosen Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil for the high-performance Corvette engines,” said David Tsurusaki, strategic global alliance manager, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants. “As the Corvette Stingray hits roads around the world, we want Corvette owners to know that Mobil 1 motor oil is specifically designed to meet their high-performance demands and will help keep their engines running like new.”
With a factory-fill relationship that began in 1993, ExxonMobil has a legacy of helping Corvette engines perform at their maximum with Mobil 1 lubricant technology. Mobil 1 motor oils are designed at the molecular level and enhanced with a proprietary additive system to provide outstanding protection against wear, high heat, cold weather and sludge buildup.
In addition to select production Corvettes, Mobil 1 lubricants drive efficiency and power for Corvette Racing’s C7.R in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. With Mobil 1 lubrication technology, the Corvette team competes in some of the most demanding endurance races in the world including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Rolex 24 at Daytona and the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
