2018 Niro Used Oil Analysis 6,300 Miles (Fuel in Oil)
I sent my oil off to Blackstone Labs to be analyzed and I am sure it would greatly benefit everyone here. This is what I wrote at another forum. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts.
Here is the report for my 2018 Kia Niro Kappa III 1.6 GDI hybrid. I had dropped factory oil at about 1,000 miles and put in GTX Magnatec 5W-30 Synthetic. Ran for about 6,300 miles to get it to the 7,500ish mark as I had planned to do 7,500 mile changes but now that may change. Sometimes when we turn the car on, we smell fuel fumes. It worries me that we have fuel in the oil, an issue I have looked up and others have. Any thoughts about this?
