    Why hasn't Hyundai moved on to 0w oil?

    Why hasn't Hyundai moved on to 0w oil?

    Been doing 3k for 30 years on mineral oil. Gonna do 5k with synthetic. My dealer uses Mobil 1 5w20. Whats the difference in thickness between 5w20 and 0w30? I know very little about synthetics other than there very confusing.
