you can use any kind of oil- if you want to keep it a long time, use the synthetic- change regular oil every 3,000 miles- the synthetic can wait for 5,000- but really, engines are expensive, why not just change the oil, no matter what it is, every 3K- if it was me, I wouldn't plan on keeping a Kia for 20 years, so I would use the regular oil-
