Manual says 5 30 regular or 10 30. Oil cap lists 5 20 and to replace every 7.5 k miles. Dealer said to use Synthetic blend 5 30 and to change every 4k miles.

Oil threads never end and it seems as though everyone has an opinion, but go by the owner's manual 2017 SF, 2.4, 5-20 or 5-30 every 7500 miles. As far as oil, I'd go cheap and the only reason I say Walmert SuperTech sythetic 5-30 is not only because of the price 5qts $17, it's dexos approved and SN plus. Sam's club also has Prime synthetic blend, 5-30 SN plus $1.79 qt. Been using both for years in the 2.0T, 2..4, as well as Acura, Jeep, Nissan, etc. and as with most all oils, no problems, these are just inexpensive and do their job.

Agree with above about using synthetic 5W20 or 5W30, based on price..

However, change every 6 months if you drive less than 10,000 mi per year.

Using OEM oil filter is important. You should be able to get 10 for <$50 online, including Amazon.

The official word is what is in your manual. Everything else is only a suggestion.

+1 on Wally World for oil. Also at one point they were selling the Hyundai oil filter. Apparently they have begun selling a lot of foreign OEM filters even though the bulk of OE stuff is ACDelco and Motorcraft.

One thing I forgot to mention...the crush washers. Very important to change out along with the dirty oil. Have gotten 2 changes out of them (when I ran out) but can be found online for cheap or talk to a dealer parts counter they will discount if you buy in bulk

I agree, my 2018 SFS is due for its 4th oil/filter change next month. It has 3,925 miles, so I'm a every 6 month oil/filter changer.

Might think about going over to Costco oil. You can get two 5 quart full synthetic 5-30w for $25 of their in house brand. I'm sure it's a good brand of oil, just rebranded. That's as cheap as I've seen for quality oil.

Sorry for the long post, but as we're stuck in the house and tired of doing chores......

Actually oil/filter change at 7500 mile intervals or one year.
Just remember, no amount of maintenance and/or expensive oil/filter is going to save the engine if it's destined to go, so as we've stated before, go by the owner's manual.

Somebody had mentioned Costco/Kirkland oil before and just checked again:
5-20 & 5-30 Synthetic 2- 5 qt. containers $29.99
It is also dexos approved and also SN plus

Another good idea that I forgot to mention is the crush washer replacement.
