i use whatever kia put in it at the services, i assume its semi synthetic which should cope with the weather temp variations. I have never considered or questioned the oil manufacturer - as far as i am concerned, as long as it meets Kias spec its fine by me...... and with Kia putting it in - i assume it does. Maybe i am making too many assumptions.

You can use 5W30 fully synthetic or 10W40 semi synthetic. Make sure it is latest spec of oil for diesel cars.
