Supertech 5W-30 Synthetic for my 2017 Elanta 2.0? #4609094

Hi,

In an effort to save some money, I am considering using Walmart's Supertech 5W-30 Full Synthetic for my 2017 Elantra SE 2.0 with 8,300 miles. Does this oil meet the requirements for my
2017 Elantra? Is Supertech basically the same quality as Pennzoil, QS, etc? My plan is to keep my elantra long term, 150,000 + miles. So I don't want to be cheap!

Would Supertech be just as good as the other oil I have been using....Motorcraft Synthetic Blend? I plan to use one of the two for my change next week.

Thanks

It is very good oil, and can come from Citgo or warren oil depending on the region it is sold.

I think it meets GM's stringent "Dexos" specification.

LOL

But yeah, like most Hyundais I think 5w-20 is definitely their recommendation.

Isn't Supertech Dexos rated? Last I heard it's good stuff. Just has a Walmart stigma attached.

You don't have to use ONLY Quaker State oil.

Yes, this SuperTech Synthetic will conform to your Hyundai Elantra. It's a synthetic motor oil!

Yes, SuperTech Syn is equal to or better than MotorCraft Syn/Blend because again, the SuperTech is a SYNTHETIC MOTOR OIL!

Now, when you mention...Pennzoil, Quaker State and others, are you only talking about their being regular/conventional motor oil as compared to Super Tech Synthetic?

Super Tech Synthetic(and their regular/conventional motor oil for that matter) are made to API & ILSAC standards & specifications. They have to be made to these Std/Spec according to LAW(I may be wrong on the LAW thing). If not made to these Std/Spec, they(Walmart) couldn't sell it.

In your engine, I would use any of the oils you listed as I don't think Hyundai has any particular requirement such as e.g., dexos.

This will not save you much money. 10 bucks a year?

Do you have ring sticking issues that would warrant use of "synthetic"
OTW "synthetic" will not extend the life of the engine beyond "conventional".
Good engines have been going 200-300K miles on "lowly" group I oil for decades.

Typically not without a valve job or timing set, though.

What are the recommended specs? I know the manual has the proper specs required. SN? sm? sl? A3/B4? What does the manual have in it.

He has a 2017 Elantra. Its too soon to think about stuck rings.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Hyundais are not all that sensitive to oil choice. At 7,500 miles OCI, you are not really going to see a lot of benefit of Synthetic over a Conv./Synblend in the base 2.0 engine. However, the Wallyword Syn if often at a Conv./Synblend price, so why not. Most conventional are surprisingly good for "average use" in a general commuter car. If it was my car, it would get Conventional Havoline and a OEM Filter.

If it was the 1.6 Turbo or a more performance engine, then I would pay more the synthetic.


If you are not going to "cheap", spend money on the better oil filter and keep up on the non-motor oil PM. That is where you get your money back. Otherwise, 150K for the Elantras is an easy bar to jump.

Since it has a DI engine I would only use a Dexos 1 gen 2 oil, personally. Just for feel-goods.

His Elantra only requires API-SM and ILSAC GF-4. SuperTech is an SN GF-5 oil, so yes, it satisfies the recommendation in the Owner's Manual.

Thanks Wemay, I was looking for a quick place to steal that.

Hyundai's are really forgiving for oil choice. an SM oil with basically any Xw30 option is fantastic.

Bottom Feeder,

The 2017 Elantra 2.0 is NOT a DI engine...its naturally aspirated multi port.

OT
Even if it were DI, Hyundai has recommended the same specs for all their non-turbo applications since the implementation of DI in many of their vehicles in 2010. I'm sure there's a great number of these owners who only change oil as a chore and with that, go the least expensive route that conforms to the OM recommendation...Conventional Oil without issue.

SuperTech is NOT made by Warren Oil. SuperTech is blended by The Warren Distribution company (aka Warren Performance Products), as a separate & different company from "Warren Oil", and uses GroupIII base oils it gets from wherever it can, yet Pennzoil uses better GroupIII oils in their synthetics, that GTL stuff. Probably not much different in performance in a normal oil change interval.
