I used for my first oil change : Pennzoil Platinum Euro lx 0W30 bought from Canadian Tire on sale. 5L for 50$.
I called different Hyundais in Vancouver and this is also what they use but for 14$/L.
I bought the OEM oil filter from the dealer tho

0w-30 or 5w-30 is fine. Look for the SP or SN+ rating.

For the same reason it also recommends 5W-30, 5W-40 etc, in the owner's manual. It's a guideline recommendation of usage, not mandatory.:)(y) Personally, I believe the 5W - 30 /40 oils provide better lubrication and protection for the engine and the turbo, then any 0W- motor oil.

Ditto, Red.

We can have a spirited discussion over 0w versus 5w (and I may lose), but the BK1 in my Genesis likes the 40 weight oil better. The idle is smoother and the engine feels better (I know, subjective). I have 5w-30 in my VN now and it seems fine, but I am considering 5w-40 at some point.

I was going to try 5W40 too at some point too. Amsoil it will be. Am hoping it quiets this noisy motor down. Sounds like a diesel sometimes. Lol.....

I recently went from a low viscosity 5w30 (almost a 5w20 after 3000 miles) to a high viscosity 5w30 (it's almost a 5w40 to start). Under similar conditions my oil temp is about 5 degrees higher now, it should still be doing a better job than the "lighter" stuff but just something I noticed.

0w oil should slightly increase fuel mileage just due to being easier to pump when cold but typically will have more viscosity improvers than a 5w30 or 10w30 and these can shear down over time. There are some exceptions to this but for the most part that is a trade off to consider as long as the 5w30 you are comparing is of similar quality.

I run 5w-30 in the winter and 10w-40 in the summer here in Texas. Mainly because of tracking/auto-x in the summer.

Also, I'm an AMSOil Independent Retailer, just sayin' ;)
