If you were considering putting anything less than Mobil 1 synthetic oil in your 2014-15 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, don’t even think about it; Chevrolet has selected it as the official factory fill oil for the Z/28’s potent 7.0 liter V8.
Says Exxon Strategic Global Alliance Manager David Tsurusaki: “Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil is designed at the molecular level to provide outstanding protection against weather conditions, wear and sludge buildup and is a perfect choice for drivers that demand the most out of their high performance vehicles.”
“The two highest-performance Camaros – the Z/28 and the COPO Camaro drag car – feature Mobil 1 right from the factory,” he concluded. The announcement is hardly a surprise considering Mobil’s longstanding relationship with Chevrolet; ExxonMobil is a sponsor of the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky, and the new NCM Motorsports Park. Mobil has also been the factory-fill oil for the Corvette since 1993.
Chevrolet is recommending the use of Mobil 1 5W-30 synthetic motor oil for normal use in the Camaro Z/28, and 15W-50 for competitive and performance driving events.
