After 10k miles on the Camry I noticed the oil darken a bit. Could just be the reported less efficient oem filter causing the oil to darken. But did a UOA which came back with excellent results. Only 5 ppm Iron reading.

i would suggest pulling a sample and having a lab run a UOA before you spend bucks on oil that is still serviceable As for the gasoline smell the UOA can confirm fuel dilution then you can find any problems and fix them

Polaris uses gas chromatography to measure fuel % in the oil which is considered the more accurate way to test for that. While Blackstone is a site sponsor, for your Hyundai I think the Polaris test will be better.

Being dark by the end of the OCI isn't something to worry about - dark by halfway through, with less than 20K miles total? Maybe, depends on the engine and driving environment. On a DI engine I wouldn't pass judgement on shortening my OCI due to f

Nice shooting gun. I've shot a WW II IBM. Low recoil. Accurate at short range. Stick with GI magazines. A lot of the newer magazines have issues, or so the owner told me... If you want one, a real GI one, then I would suggest that you get it soon,

Perform a UOA (Used Oil Analysis) on the oil. It is the only way to truly know the health of it. I have had oil samples that reeked of gasoline and expected the fuel dilution levels to be high and they were normal. Senses can be misleading--analysis
