I am with, Pat. Everything I have read here says GM SC oil ONLY. It is animal fat based and is very different than normal and synthetic oils. For the low price, I would get that stuff out of there and replace with the dealer stuff.

(and I thought we had been teaching you so well, here)

Pearl.....I am not getting rouled up we just want to make sure that your car is not damaged by the oil, and that you get the correct oil in your Supercharger....

drain all of the 5w30 out

then you want to purchase 2 bottles of GM supercharger oil and then fill the nose with the SC oil to the bottom of the threads on the fill hole
