    Engine Oil Recommendations

    ***DISCLAIMER:***

    The following information regarding engine oil recommendations was not created by me; it was created by a member named -X- over at the Veloster Turbo forums who has done a significant amount of research to find out what oil is best for our Gamma 1.6 turbo engines.

    I asked for permission from him prior to posting this.

    You can find his original thread which targets LSPI (low speed pre-ignition) prevention which affects all turbo GDI motors, not just ours. Feel free to do your research on the subject for the explanation as to why these oils are recommended.

    LSPI Risk Minimization Tips and Research

    The decision to use whichever oil in your own vehicle is entirely your choice


    Owner's Manual Recommended Oil

    Total Quartz 9000 5W30





    Anti-LSPI Oil


    Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5W-30 *** Ultra Platinum, not just Platinum



    PAO and Ester-based Oils

    RedLine 5W-40 or 5W-30
    Cerma 5W-40 or 5W-30
    Cerma X 5W-40 or 5W-30
    AMSOIL Signature 5W-30
    Motul 8100 X-cess 5W-40 or 5W-30

    Off-the-shelf A5/B5 Specification Oils

    Castrol Edge SYNTEC 5W30 ***contains high amounts of magnesium which may cause excess wear on the turbo overtime***

    NOT RECOMMENDED OIL

    Mobil 1 Synthetic 5W30 ***there is proof on the VT forums that this oil can cause sludge in our motors... use at your own risk***

    Forte Specific Information

    The following section was created entirely by me, all photos were taken directly from the owner's manual.





    ***Please note for this section I only included the "Severe Usage Conditions" - I believe that we purchased a turbo car for a reason and spirited driving is inevitable. I recommend this schedule over the normal one but the choice is yours***

    @staak Thanks much for those who dont read or always understand whats in the manual.

    Food for thought I work at a kia dealership and our A tec/ head mechanic told me to run mobile 1 in my forte5 with that being said i just wanted to express just because they are a certified dealer does not mean that are always (usually) right...

    Thank you all for contributing to the forum!!

    My dealer told me that they only use regular conventional oil.... On everything. If anything goes wrong, you get it looked after with warranty... I was like, no thanks, ill bring my own oil...

    Any idea where to get ULTRA platinum in Canada? It seems to be rare up here..

    I contacted Pennzoil about acquiring it locally and I asked why they don't have it in any brick and mortar stores... I'm in Ottawa... And basically got a generic reply saying that it wasn't in demand for the market blah blah blah.

    They then gave me the number of a 3rd party distributor only 20 mins from me... I called and they wanted $60 something... Screw that.

    I can get 12x 1L bottles of amsoil for $120... Which is what I'm doing.

    Unfortunately not Caesar.

    That's a good price for a case, I'm a dealer and pay $94 or roughly $7.85 a qt.
