I recently completed a 4,500 mile run in my 17 SantaFe with the 2.4 engine with Valvoline Modern Engine 5-30. I had a dramatic increase in oil consumption. Had to add a half quart every 1,500 miles. Changed back to Quaker State 5-30 syn and have not had any oil use now in 1,000 miles.

That is a mid SAPS oil and I don't know if that would have anything to do with it? I just changed out Valvoline Synthetic Maxlife 0w20 from my Hyundai GF4D Gamma 1.6L and much to my surprise it consumed a half quart over 4000 miles. I will be lowering my OCI to 3000 miles to see what the results are.

I have been using QSUD 5-30 steadily in my Tucson 1.6 and have had no oil consumption at 52,000 miles. I think that I may try Mobil 1 0w40 at my next change. the owners manual says that 40 wt is acceptable and the M1 is on the thinner side of 40.

I have used M1 0w40 in my Hyundai and it works well, probably better as a warm weather choice though. I have used it in the winter in this engine and it ran too sluggish for my liking.

Probably needed some time to settle due to chemistry differences.
