Well due to unforeseen circumstances my Wife will be off work for possibly quite some time. So we had to downsize a few things to make sure we didn't stretch ourselves to thin. I traded in the Ram for a 2018 Sonata.

It will get driven to work which is 20-25 minutes 90% highway.

My plan for this one is to stick with 5k OCI's since it is D.I. After the first free dealer oil change at about 1,500 miles I'm going to use 5w30 Valvoline synthetic and OE filters. Will be nice to stock all the same filters and oil since both vehicles use the same everything. also run Top tier fuel except once a month with the Kroger points.

Sound like a solid plan?

Sorry to hear the circumstances. Hoping for the best for you and the family.

Yes, the plan sounds like a solid one. Here are the TDS for VFS...

Going from a 2015 Ram 4x4, this is downsizing. About a $340 a month difference between the two between payment, gas and insurance. lol

Yeah that's a huge difference MuzzleFlash40. $340 is a lot of money to a strong majority of people out here.
I agree with Wemay that your plan is a good one.
I hope that your wife can get better soon enough. Take everything one day at a time. That's all you can do. Has hard as this is to do... Try not to "solve" her problems or give her an answer. She may well just need you to listen and just be there. And yes, I know that goes against everything about us being guys and all. Hard to do.

I wonder why MuzzleFlash chose Valvoline. Usually it's always either M1 or Pennz Platinum.

Solid plan - except run one of the new DEXOS 1 Gen 2 synthetic 5W30 oils ... The one that catches my eye is the new PP 5W30 DEXOS 1 Gen 2 synthetic which is a thin (for grade) 30 weight that also meets Euro specs for staying in grad (prevent fuel dilution).

Sounds good to me. The Valvoline meets the new Dexos 1 Gen standards although, that wouldn’t concern me.

I believe both your vehicles spec 5W-20 on the oil cap. So not sure extended oil change use of 5W-30 would fulfill warranty requirements.
I do like the NOACK of the 5W-20.

FWIW, In Canada, Hyundai requires 3,750 mile OCI.

But what about the length of these payments?

Sure 5w20 is printed on the cap but, fuel dilution is common with the Hyundai/KIA engines. When I smelled gasoline in my drained oil, I went to 5W30. 3,750 mile OCI is for severe and 7,500 normal. I do 5,000 with an OE filter. A good synthetic blend is also fine for 5,000 OCI. My KIA does well on Motorcraft Synthetic Blend 5W30. The Hyundai dealership uses QS 5W30 blend as their fill.

Mparr it's not common except in early direct injection engines. Previous MPI engines to the early DI engines it wasn't common and it isn't now in the latest vehicles with/without DI. There are UOA's on here that show this.

The smell test isn't accurate. My Journey's oil smells like fuel at change time but it shows 0 fuel dilution on the UOA and I regularly drive it like I stole it. wink
