I sincerely appreciate the input. Hyundai recommends the usual vague 7500 oci for "normal" conditions and 3000 oci for "severe". The problem is that they appear to overlap. It seems to me it may be a ploy to get you if something happens during the warranty period. I just want the best for my new ride. I may just stick with YB every 3000 miles. I really don't want to dump $25 worth of synthetic oil every 3000 miles. The warranty recommendations for OCIs is scaring me a little. I am relieved to see a lot of positive comments on Pennzoil YB. Seems like a great dino oil to use. The Veracruz does not have an oil monitoring system either. Its up to the owner to keep track of it. Interestingly though, in the Hyundai manual, it recommends Quaker State oil.. There is even a "Q" logo in the print.
