GM released a statement stating that Mobile1 5w30 synthetic oil can be used in superchargers.

You can use the GM Supercharger Oil at $2.25 an ounce, or Mobile 1 5W30 Synthetic at $0.25 an ounce. They both do the same job, and Mobile 1 will smell a hell of a lot better when you change it versus the GM stuff......ick!
