Well... if you could "get away" with using the cheap and standard conventional Lube without any negative side effects, and that is what the engine manufacturer recommends you use in the car, then what's stopping you?

Having said that, I honestly don't understand why anyone would even use the cheap stuff when you can easily find synthetic oil on sale for $3-4 a quart and have peace of mind that you've got Synthetic oil in the engine.

Run it conventional with confidence if you want. As long as your running MFG. spec oil; those engines are bullet proof as long as your changing the oil and filter.

It may help with ring sticking if the premium cost product has less vm and a more stable base, OTW there is no conventional ILSAC oils and most "synthetic" ARE NOT.

I tend to find very good oils amoungst the "synthetic" offerings that let my engine perform better.

Not all premium oils are worth the added cost.

QSGB and motorcraft are decent conventionals.

I would use whatever oil you can get a really good deal on. The engine you have usually only blows up from manufacturing defects or lack of maintenance. The type of oil you use doesn't matter, only the fact that you change it on time and keep receipts for the warranty.

My sisters '10 Santa Fe with the 2.4 has gotten to 150,000 miles using conventional oil from an oil change shop on 7500-10,000 mile intervals.
It only recently started getting synthetic since I started changing the oil in it.

In NY with the cold winters and hot humid summers, I'd prolly go syn (they're all blends). Maybe SuperTech laugh

Disregard the "why would anyone run cheap stuff" crowd when the mfcr has confidence that their recommendation of API-SM/ILSAC GF-4 will properly lubricate the engine. In fact, it has done so without issue since 2011 with this platform, having one hiccup, a build issue at one of the assembly plants for certain years. It is absolutely perfectly fine to run Conventional oil in the 2.4. As a matter of fact, my Sonata will be getting a steady dose of dino here-on-out.
