Originally posted by Ray H: SK is South Korea's largest oil company. While they don't sell much finished product in the U.S. (some manual transmission synthetic gear lubes through Hyundai and Kia dealerships - maybe a few other products, too) they do export considerable quantities of Group II and Group III base lube stocks over here to one of the big majors according to Lube Report - forgot who. My Sonata V6 engine came with SK motor oil as its factory fill, viscosity range unkown, and it seemed to hold up quite well during break-in.

Here is the new website, http://www.skzic.com/kor/body2-2.htm I don't care so much about oversea oils that aren't available in U.S. Someday we will be seeing Chinese synthetic oils at WalMart
