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?

My Hyundai dealer said they use Penzoil full synthetic for the 2019 and 2020 VT R-Spec. I'm not sure which grade Penzoil though, so I'll be calling back.
Should I let them do my oil change?
Just called them again, they use Pennzoil Platinum Euro LX 0w-30. I'm looking at my owner manual right now and nowhere does it say 0w is acceptable.
Edit: I live in northern Alabama, temps range from below freezing (rarely) in the winter to over 100 in the summer (on the reg).
I called another dealership about an hour away, they use Quaker State 03-30. No idea what my local dealership is doing with that 0w-30 but that's why I'm not doing oil changes at the dealer.
