So you have a 7 year old car with no miles on it?
Castrol Magnatec 5w30 synthetic engine oil is best for use in common rail diesel engines of small capacity employing a DPF, (Diesel Particulate Filter). Just buy your own and tell your mechanic to use it when he does the service.(Castrol are Hyundai's choice of oil manufacturer here in Australia). After it has done over 100,000miles. You could switch to 5w40 with no ill effects. Slightly 'thicker' oil for older engines requiring the same protection as 5w30.
