Oil filters for 2018 Elantra LE/SE 2.0L L4 DOHC 16 Valves

I have a 2018 Elantra SE with the 2.0L L4 DOHC 16 Valve engine.

So far, I have driven just over 20,000 trouble free miles.

The dealer changed the engine oil once but I did all the other oil changes myself.

I have been using the OEM Elantra oil filters but I would like to try other oil filters.

I plan to start using synthetic oil and extend the drain interval to 10,000 Km (about 6,200 miles) for the duration of the (cold northern) winter.

Please let me know if anyone has any experience (positive or negative) about the filters listed below.

a) Fram Tough Guard
b) Fram Ultra Synthetic
c) Amzoil EA15K20
d) Quaker State Oil Filter
e) Mobil 1™ Extended Performance Oil Filter

These are the only filters that are available to me.

Any and all comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
JimBob

If you change your oil at 6200 miles as you say, why not use the Supertech ST9688 oil filter from Walmart and save $10. It's good for 10000 miles. Their full synthetic oil for around $16 for five quarts works good as well. Have been using this on my 2016 Elantra with 107,000 trouble free miles so far and still no oil use in between changes which I do every 5000 miles. Hopefully there's a Walmart nearby.

I cringe at anyone who uses the words, FRAM FILTERS. QUAKER STATE is the recommended oil so why not use their filter if you have access to them or just do the SuperTech as suggested.

I use QUAKER STATE ULTIMATE DURABILITY 5w30 and Hyundai oil filter.

I've had many Sonata's and Elantra's come into my shop with oil pressure problems and were a direct result of an aftermarket oil filter because someone wanted to do things on the cheap. Stick with Hyundai OEM...

Sooperkleen19, throwinrocks, and Ray Thatcher,

A big thank you to all three of you for your responses.

I think I will continue to use the OEM filter and QS Ultimate Durability or SuperTech Full synthetic oil.

Thanks,
JimBob

It's like I posted in another thread....Hyundai uses one specific spin-on oil filter for a reason. They bench test all their engines before they are installed in a car. The oil pressures parameters produced by the running engine are saved in the PCM memory therefore the engine runs at peak performance based on those PSI numbers. If you unknowing put a cheaper filter on your vehicle the engine is going to react to the change in PSI pressures and usually not for the better. Believe me when I tell you guys, don't mess around with engine internals using an aftermarket filter. There is no better filter than the one the engineers in Korea use in the factory.
