Why no fuel dilution?

My GDI 2.4L doesn't show any dilution either. I think Hyundai / Kia has the GDI dilution problem figured out.

Dealer fill doesn't meet ILSAC Limits on Phos!

Looks like a diesel service category. oil.

Plus big spike in wear numbers.

So much for extra ZDP. and extra viscosity helping out in the Summer!

You better ding them on that.

Looks like those break in wear metals are starting to settle out. It will be interesting to see your next report. That 5W-20 seems to be doing just fine great TBN.

Probably from the assembly lube they use.

Yes, next time there will be an analysis of the Kendall GT-1 Max 5W-20 - with Wix 51344 filter. With this Mobil 1 EP 5W-20 oil was used Wix 51324 oil filter. And with that previous oil from the Rick Case dealer barrel the original is Hyundai 26300-35504. Well, this is in case someone is suddenly interested.
