No it's just a observation the the significance is to your choosing.

When I was using dinosaurs it was not like new at the time of extraction.

My 2013 Elantra is off warranty now, I have always used the OEM filter , and mostly Quaker State 5W-20 Advanced Durability regular oil,changed at 6 month intervals. I am retired so I don't drive too many k's now having 24,500 KL.now. With this oil change regime, the engine has run smoothly with no undue noise at start up.

But I have started in a new direction now, going with the Fram Ultra XG9688 and Mobil 1 0W-20 synthetic oil. I have not done the oil change yet, waiting for the oil to arrive tomorrow. What I have not decided upon yet is the oil change interval, I am thinking 6-7000 kl. or every 10 months.

The OEM 26300 35504 filter is well built, with a thick casing, and sturdy filter cartridge, my concern is the filtering ability vs the Fram Ultra

The Fram did not weigh as much as the OEM filter, but it was close,and Fram is known for thinner housing material, but as long as it is strong enough. The Fram filter is smaller in diameter and a little taller.

I have used synthetic on my 2013 Elantra since new with OEM filter and a 5000 mile (not kl) OCI. Either Mobil 1, Pennzoil Plat or QSUD. the OCI is a tough one, if I lived in Canada I would go with a 0W20 year round and probably keep my 5000 mile interval. I would not worry about the filtration issue but I would want the best flow at at start up in your winters. Just my opinion.

Actually 0W-20 oil viscosity is something I found out about recently, I read somewhere that the 0W-20 rated oil may be a bit more fortified than the 5-20. i am thinking that 0W will perhaps give better oil flow in winter at start up, and have read that engine wear happens at this time.

The other thing I am curious about, and may discover: will your engine run better, and will you get better fuel economy with synthetic oil? The one i have coming is the Mobil 1 AFE 0-20.

You will get slightly better gas mileage but it may be undetectable to you. My experience has been a somewhat smoother engine when I changed over an engine to syn.

I am changing the oil today, I am curious to experience this Mobil 1 AFE 0W-20. Actually the Quaker State oil 5-20 was just recently changed, but I will save it for my Geo Metro and also I can use it for chain lube oil for my chainsaw, it may not be a bad thing to have a fairly clean internal engine to start with. Also will be installing the Fram Ultra xg9688

I think that the anti drain back valve may work better on the Fram. I have less startup rattle than with the stock Hyundai filter.
I agree! there is no start up rattle at all, it runs smooth and quiet, this engine runs well with the 0w-20 synthetic and Fram Ultra oil filter.

Oil change and fog light bulb replacement today. I used Quaker State Ultimate Durability Synthetic 5W30 and Napa Gold 1334 filter. First time using this filter but its really built just like the stock one. No install issues and no noise so far.

I’ve literally never changed the oil in my MD...it’s been done 100% at the same Hyundai dealer every 5000 miles ($30 with coupon x 22 times)
**** for $30... even going through RockAuto to get an OEM filter and 4 quarts of oil is $20...I’ll pay someone $10 to do it for me everyday of the week

Although I am slowly getting to the point of having someone do it for me I cringh at the dealer using the least expensive bulk oil they can find that may not even be the correct viscocity for my engine. I would have to bring my own oil and hope they use it.

Find a highly respected private import shop that works on Audi/VW/BMW that has reasonable oil change prices and tell them you will bring your own filter, so they don't have to order one in. They will most likely have Audi/VW speced oil that is FAR superior to the Hyundai dealer even if they use Hyundai's speced oil that is nothing to special. You will most likely get a person that has more attention to details since they work on premium cars and in most cases own those premium cars.

I have used Amazon 5W-30 after reading the 5W-30 is better for protection and the 5W-20 is for better mpg at the cost of a thinner film and possibly more wear. No problems with Amazon SN+ 5W-30 and Hyundai OEM filter. If anything, it has run smoother and more efficient than any oil change I have had from any shop or the dealer.
