If I ran 5w40, it would certainly only be from May to October here in Michigan. I doubt my Manual shows it as approved.


it isn't. Your 2.4 has approval to use 5w20/30 and 10w30.

Where to you buy your ~5 quarts of Castrol Edge 5W-40 oil?


My stash is from a great deal found on amazon over a year ago. 6- individual quarts for about $25. I have seen 5qt bottles make appearances randomly at the local Walmart and:

Correct.
Besides, if it ain't SN Plus and Dexos1 Gen2, it ain't going in my wife's Hyundai, at least not for the first 10y/100k.
We are on-track to have 80K on the vehicle in 10 years. I'll be happy to be still breathing then and know where I parked the Hyundai last...... lol.
