Since we bough our cars new over 2 years ago and injured my back I've been using the dealer oil changes. Well, i'm pretty healed up and we just got a new house with a nice garage so it's time to start doing my own again. Her Santa Fe gets driven about 35-40 minutes each way mostly highway, plus trips on the weekend. I'll be doing 5k OCI's with it using OEM filters since Hyundai get antsy over aftermarket oil filters. With relatively short intervals you think it would be ok going with 5w30 GTX conventional or VWB since I hear they are a blend now, or go with a syn like Magnatec? My Ram gets driven about 20-25 minutes each way mostly highway, about 10-12k a year. So I plan on doing a spring/fall change schedule using either a wix or TG fram oil filter. The plan for this one is using a 5w20 Castrol Syntec or Valvoline syn. What are your thoughts? Thanks!
