I have 5w30 QSFS in my 05 Element w 214k have ran HM oils in it before. It is due for an oil change this coming weekend, PP 0w40 or QSFS HM 5w30 will be next. Next summer it will get Havoline Pro-DS Lifelong syn 10w30 or PP HM 10w30 have both on the shelf. Any HM oil will be fine either blend or synthetic. I run 5w30 or higher in my 5w20 spec oils just fine.
