GM DEXOS MOTOR OIL – Why does it matter to you?

GM DEXOS MOTOR OIL

Why does it matter to you?

What is dexos oil?

Dexos oil is an engine oil that meets a specific set of stipulations. The stringent specifications dexos oil meets help your vehicle meet the latest standards for emissions and improve fuel efficiency. Even if emissions standards and fuel efficiency don’t rock your socks, you should use dexos oil for any engine that calls for it. The rationale being that the engine is designed in such a way that dexos oil specifications help it work as it should. Dexos oil is also specially developed for proper lubrication, sludge reduction, friction level moderation and controlling temperatures – the latter being especially important in vehicles with turbochargers or superchargers, as they create more heat. Coincidentally, due to the engine downsizing trend, the number of vehicles with forced induction (turbocharged or supercharged) has expanded quickly.

The dexos oil specification for GM vehicles also provides a global framework that enables GM vehicle owners anywhere in the world to know which oil is right for their vehicles, instead of making different blends for different regions as was often the case in the past.
 
Dexos goes beyond that.
 
Aside from meeting the current API (American Petroleum Institute) and ILSAC (International Lubricants Standardization and Approval Committee) requirements, dexos oils were developed through additional testing to provide a reduction in piston deposits of up to 28% and a slight improvement in fuel efficiency when compared to the API and ILSAC requirements.
 
What Is the Difference between dexos1 and dexos2? Can I use either?
 
No! Even though many of the features are very similar, dexos1 oils are designed for gasoline engines and dexos2 for diesels. Due to the inherent differences in operations between gasoline and diesel engines, using the intended oil is of the highest importance.
 
Can Dexos Be Used in Vehicles Older than 2011?
 
Even though you do not have to use Dexos oils in vehicles that were made before Dexos became the standard for GM, Dexos is compatible with older vehicles as well.

Parker Thompson wins best pass of the year and most passes of the year in hardware haul

From Parker Thompson Racing

THOMPSON RECIPIENT OF FOUR AWARDS AT THE ROAD TO INDY CHAMPIONSHIP CELEBRATION

After a dramatic 2019 Indy Pro 2000 season, Parker Thompson may have missed out on the overall championship title, but his accomplishments on and off the track are receiving strong recognition. On Monday night at the Road to Indy Championship Celebration, the young Canadian was awarded Third Place in the Overall 2019 Indy Pro 2000 presented by Cooper Tires Championship. He also brought home the Hi-Tide Kids On Track Spirit Award, the Tilton Hard Charger Award, and was the winner of the AiM Sports Move of the Year.

Third Place Overall Indy Pro 2000 Championship

After winning the opening two races of 2019, Thompson and rookie team Abel Motorsports were challenged to establish a rhythm in the mid part of the season. Disappointing finishes at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Freedom 90 were a serious blow to Thompson’s championship hopes. As the season progressed, the team re-discovered much of the pace that it had shown on opening weekend. Thompson’s final record for the 2019 Indy Pro 2000 Championship showed two wins and eight podiums. Earning a total of 300 points, he finished third in the overall standings.

Tilton Hard Charger Award

In races throughout 2019 Thompson repeatedly demonstrated an ability to navigate upwards through the field during race action. Most notably, in the final race of the season, he started from the 10th position after a mechanical issue in qualifying. Thompson would move up eight spots during the race to finish 2nd. With a total of 35 passes (seven more than any other competitor), he earned this year’s Tilton Hard Charger Award.

Hi-Tide Kids on Track Spirit Award

Recognizing his involvement both on and off the track, Thompson received the 2019 Hi-Tide Kids on Track Spirit Award as the Indy Pro 2000 driver who most embodied the spirit of hard work and a positive attitude throughout the Road to Indy season.

AiM Sports Move of the Year

AiM Sports nominated the three best overtake maneuvers from the Indy Pro 2000 season for this award, with a fan vote choosing the overall winner. For his exciting pass around the outside of Rasmus Lindh in Turn 4 at the Honda Indy Toronto, Parker Thompson captured the most fan votes and the award trophy.

Parker Thompson
“When Abel Motorsports and I got together at the beginning of the year, we had our sights set on a Championship win. Anytime that you don’t take home the top prize, there is going to be a hint of disappointment. That said, I’m proud of what we accomplished this year as a new team on the Road to Indy. Here at the Championship Celebration, it is great to see our hard work get the recognition it deserves. Bill Abel, Mark Gibbs, my teammate Jacob Abel, and the whole crew at Abel Motorsports were an absolute pleasure to work with all year. I’ve proven that I have what it takes to continue on the Road to Indy, and I’m excited about what opportunities I will find to move forward.”
