Same here. I supply my own oil to the dealer (Penrite ENVIRO+ GF-5 5W-30 FULL SYN.) in exchange for an $80 discount.

It's a better quality proper full synth Dexos oil that you can buy on sale from any car parts store for less than Holden will charge you for the oil they'll drop in. Win Win!

Use whatever oil works for you and meets specifications and you can't go wrong.
just serviced my l77 yesterday with penrite gf5 5w30 and a ryco z663st filter, I have used penrite on all my vehicles diesel and petrol for years.

It's good stuff, 50yo company and German made products. Lots of good info about it online.

This is what I do. I supplied my own Nulon 5w-30 last service. BUT, I made sure to have them specifically note on the receipt the brand, weight AND that it was Dexos 2 rated, and that the front of the bottle specifically mentions Holden/HSV approved.
Just a point of clarification. The oil you supplied is Dexos 1, which is the recommended Dexos oil for your car. If you look closely at bottom right hand side of the thing on the logo that looks like a two, you will see a white number 1.

What brand of oil do the stealer use anyway? I notice they put a Mobil oil change reminder on my windscreen, some kind of Mobil 5w30?

On my recipet it just says something along the line of GM Dexos 5w30 oil...
