    Motor oil recommendations?

    Has anyone other than me used the Lucas Sythetic Oil Stabilizer in their vehicles?
    I used it in my 97 F-150 for 10 yrs., and sold it with 260k miles on it and never used a drop of oil, and never even had to go inside the inside to fix anything. so I know Lucas is good!
    I am just curious if say a high grade Valvoline Syn-MAx oil w/ Lucas is just as good or better than the top of the line oils like Amsoil or Royal Purple?

    -X- really has done a ton of research into this subject. What I have found in my short time here is that the 1.6L turbo Gas Direct Injected (GDI) engine in this car presents a very different set of rules when it comes to oils than anything else I have experienced up until this point.

    I don't know what year VT you have, but read that link -X- posted on Low Speed Pre Ignition (LSPI) Risk Minimization. Oil selection plays a pretty significant part in contributing to LSPI.

    First of all, thanks for all the replies!

    I just used Mobil 1 Syn. Extended Performance and the Mobil 1 extended performance filter that filters 99%.
    I do not know nearly enough about all of these numbers to know what exactly i should be looking for in a motor oil for this 2014 Veloster Turbo, so please let me know if I am making a major screw up by using this oil w/ Lucas Synthetic Stabilzer added in place of 3/4 qt. of the 4.8 qts of oil?

    here are the Technical details on the Mobil 1 oil and then a link to the LUCAS, if you need to see them.

    right now I have Mobil 1 0w-40 in my '15 Turbo... but thinking of going AMSOIL, which 5w-40 would be the right one to get? I see 2, one says mid saps and the other full saps?

    I'm running PUP 0w-40 for a while now. Seems to be working well for me. Oil analysis in the last change says it's doing it's job.

    I use the Amsoil Signature 5w-30. Change it every 3k miles. Use the link at the bottom of Xs signature.

    Some engines can be damaged by running an oil that is too thin for cold start and warm-up running, especially with cold piston to bore clearances. For example there will be excessive piston and bore wear in the engine in my wife's Opel if anything less than a 10W30 or 10W40 is run in that engine, and similarly with my Triumph motorcycle which must run 10W40. There may be a reason why Hyundai specified 5W40, and often the 5W is more important than the 40.

    I don't know why so many want to ad-lib with their cars. Hyundai is a big company which has built millions of cars and they aren't stupid. If the VT will run 0w30 or 0w40 or 5w30 or 5w40; don't you think they would put that in the handbook?

    But it's your engine and not mine. Go ahead and run what your heart's desire.
