If you have a GM vehicle....

...you should avoid using Castrol GTX motor oil!

Here is an article and link about this from GM TechLink

GM Approved Engine Oils Update

An updated version of the GM6094M Approved Engine Oils list is available in the Reference Guide section of the TechLink website. GM has recently conducted a test program to check several of the oils on the Approved Oils list for compliance with the GM6094M specification. One of the oils tested during this program, Castrol GTX, was found not to meet the GM6094M specification, and so this oil has been removed from the Approved Oils list.

Watch for further updates to the GM6094M and GM4718M Approved Products list on the GM Techlink website.

I've used Penzoil since I was 16. I certainly won't be switching. (although I plan to run Purple when I get my 5th Gen)
