To clear up any confusion on choosing the optimal engine oil grade for your G70 2.0T or 3.3T I pulled an the entire guide that Genesis gave us. It might not be perfect as we might discover over the coming years but its a start, directly from the source. Went through this process myself after realizing the service guys at my local Genesis dealer were a bit clueless. Genesis recommends Quaker State but I will be experimenting with brands (Motul?) even if it means paying a bit more. A 3.3T will be my weekend track toy so this is something I want to get right!

Genesis G70 Engine Oil SAE Viscosity Numbers for 2.0 T & 3.3 T Models
  • 2.0 T-GDI: ACEA C2 or above/ SAE 0W-30 (or 05W-30, 05W-40, 20W-50, 15W-40, 10W-30 depending on weather temperature range). If the ACEA C2 engine oil is not available in your country, you are able to use API SL & ILSAC GF-3 (or above) or ACEA A3.
  • 3.3 T-GDI: ACEA A5 or above/ SAE 5W-30 (or 10W-30 depending on weather temperature range). If the ACEA A5 engine oil is not available in your country, you are able to use API SM & ILSAC GF4 (or above) or ACEA A3.
