According to the manual, anything you want. 5w-30 looks preferred in warmer climes.

What about the chart i attached? It looks like 15w-40 or 20w-50 is feasible too. Can anyone confirm this?
Normally do we follow the recommended oil or so long as the specs are met its good enough?

it looks like you could use any of the listed grades, but they are recommending 5w30 for Better Fuel Economy.

Considering your climate's temperature range, feel free to run 15w40 or 20w50, as long as it meets manufacturer's specifications. Just be advised that with thicker oils, you will likely experience a mild fuel economy trade-off over running a lighter engine oil.

You may use any oil weight on the chart, because your local temperature is not extremely hot or cold. Be sure that you follow the ACEA spec.

From what I've seen, 5W20 weight will provide adequate lubrication and protection, and allow for better mileage. 5W-20 weight runs in most small cars, and even light duty trucks, across the USA.

You could try all of those motor oil weights, and report back with your progress. Chart everything. Give us as much raw data as possible.

If you mention -50 or even -40 in US for small Hyundai's (especially MPI? I assume it's port injected and not DI) , thinies will send you to jail LOL

I use 5w30 in my 2017 Elantra 2.0L year round, but have been toying with the idea of running 10w30.

Based on availability and cost, you could go for the Shell Helix Ultra 5w40. Those are often on sale there for a decent price.

Thanks, the after sales service person was saying if you use other than shell helix 5w 30, your warranty will be voided.

I have a rather huge stash of rotella and other oils that I hope I can eventually use.
