Nice Stuff
I ordered this oil because of the Dexos2 rating. Like all other Mobil 1 oils, it is great stuff.

This said however, I also picked up some Redline 5W/40 Euro formula which has the same Dexos2 approval. I put it in the other vehicle that required the Dexos2 approval and you can tell the difference. They are the same make and engine's with about the same miles on them and the Redline is just smoother. This is the only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5.

You can't go wrong with either product, and to be honest, Mobil 1 saved a race for me onetime and the car ended up winning. Upon teardown I was expecting to see pretty severe damage since the oil ended up being hotter than 360 degrees F for the last 20 laps of the race. Only showed very minor heat pads on a couple of the bearings... we were all amazed. So trust me when I tell you that you can't go wrong with Mobil 1 or the Redline.

2014 Corvette, just bought used. I still change oil and filter far more often than recommended - old habit. My last Corvette went 105K with no engine problems. It's worth the extra cost for the best oil.

Mobil 1 synthetics are an excellent brand that is available worldwide. The quality has saved my behind in racing as well as daily driving. My new vehicle requires the Dexos specification, so this was my selection since we do a lot of driving in hot a climate.

Can I use FS 0w40 on a catless c7?
A shopper on Sep 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. The only difference between the Dexos 1 and 2 is that the 2 also bags a diesel certification.
can Mobil 1 0W-40 without Dexos cert be used in a corvette?
Edward M on Apr 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Dexos-2 Certification simply says that levels of various things are either not in the oil, or at a very minimum level. This is done for emissions equipment on your car. In todays world of emissions control, it is done by maintaining the proper air / fuel ratio, temperatures of exhaust, water, and motor oil. The OEM manufacture has to warrant that the emissions system will perform properly for a minimum of 60,000 miles or something. So when you're looking at an engine such as the Chevrolet Corvette, as well as many other high output engines from Ford, Mopar, etc, emissions compliance becomes an issue that needs to have everything working properly and held within a tight tolerance. The residue that many oils bypass into the exhaust can be handled easily in your everyday engine and their supporting emissions systems. But the high performance versions use different catalytic converter materials that are more efficient, but also more susceptible to the effect of typical engine oil bypass. FYI, ALL engines have some blow-by and send some level of chemical vapor stuff down the exhaust.

The Dexos 2 oils minimize this problem. I use the Dexos 2 rated oils and specifically this one in a Duramax diesel. They require the Dexos-2 for the same reasons, to protect the residue of ash and sulfur from hurting the Diesel Particulate filters.

Now, with all of this said, using a standard automotive 0W/40 oil will not hurt your engine. It won't hurt you emissions either in one use of it either. But it is better to be safe than sorry, and as long as you stay with a quality product like Mobil 1 or Red Line Oils with the Dexos-2 rating, their superior lubriacation formulations and elements used will not be a problem.

Lastly, DO NOT USE RACING OIL in your street engine with emissions controls! They use a high level of zinc to prevent wear on the highly loaded metal to metal things such as the lifters and cam followed on the camshaft.
