GM isn't going to waste the 2 week time frame or money to have the oil run through analysis. Even then other oils have just as much metals, minerals, additives etc in it so there is no way to tell. Specially not on these motors. V8 corvettes that blow all the time could be a different story since it costs them a lot in repair money.

Pennzoil Pure Plus Platinum 5w30 High Mileage
FRAM (Yes, FRAM) Ultra Synthetic

From there, I just change when it tells me, since it's always well below the extended range of these products.

I actually took a lot of time to decide on these as well. Lots of other forums, reviews, and tests.

I'm a Mobil 1 guy myself, seems to have the best value and I have only heard good things.
