I definitely use M1 5W-20 or Amsoil OE 5W-20 which are at the heavier end of the 20 grade spectrum.
In a 5W-20, PP or Havoline which are quite light would be two good choices.

I do mostly city driving, but do let my car stretch its legs regularly on the highway. My split is about 65 city / 35 hwy. My last 2 UOA's came back pretty good using the same oil. So the question is, should I consider switching to a full synthetic, such as Amsoil OE 5w20, M1 5w20 or similar if I'm planning to keep the same OCI until the car is about out of warranty? I was going to switch to TGMO 0w20, but Hyundai will not honor warranty service for lubrication if they see that oil was used smirk

Best promo of the year from Bridgestone, effective Jan 3-20, also includes 15% off any service. I'm buying a new set of S-04 summers and storing 'til spring. This is a real deal.

Putting in a full synthetic is not automatically waste of money. You can try it & see if your millage goes up? Buying a pack of smokes or fast food are better chances of wasting money IMO.

If people are concerned about getting money out of the syn oil drive 75 like everyone else in TX & Rev the engine knowing you have better protection. If the police or other drivers say anything, say hey don't worry! I'm Safe, I am using full synthetic!

I already have.
Both those oils are heavier than the typical 5W-20 dino (QuakerState?) that Hyundai specifies.

If one wants to upgrade to a synthetic oil the main viscosity advantage one expects is to be lighter on start-up not heavier.
M1 0W-20 accomplishes that while maintaining much the same hot operational viscosity as a dino.

I would definitely save your money and either keep using the Kendall semi-syn, or go with a regular conventional. Both of them will treat your engine just fine while under warranty.

Your UOA look good. I'd switch to full syn 0w20 Kendall and do 6-7 K intervals. If you're able to do your own OC's PP 0W20 for the same intervals, Kendall is hard to find, or Mobil 5K if you'd prefer a shorter interval.

Since PP 5W-20 actually has a higher VI to PP 0W-20 and therefore should be lighter, I see no point in using PP 0W-20 in a vehicle spec'd for a 5W-20.
In a Pennzoil product, PP 5W-20 is their best offering and of course it's 100% warranty compliant.
