Hi Eugene and welcome to the forum.

 

Which oil was Hyundai's recommended lubricant back in 2009, I have no idea.  Regardless of that, all modern diesels run very well on fully synthetic oil, indeed the Shell Helix stuff is their recommended product for the i40.

 

Unless you prefer not to pay premium oil prices, I'd say just have a look around locally and see which major brand of fully synthetic oil you can buy cheapest.  My own favourite is Mobil 1 as I can pick it up for very reasonable money at Costco.  As many of these modern engines have been designed to run on synthetic stuff, I'd stick with that rather than the real stuff, particularly with the extended service intervals  now common.

 

Sláinte,
