Post your latest oil change

Son's vehicle. . . .
2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, 2.0T
ODO: 75,138 miles
OCI 2674 miles, 6 months (blame COVID; normally he hits the OCI mileage well before the date limit).
OUT: Supertech 5w-30 synthetic, API SN, OEM filter
IN: Castrol GTX Magnatec 5w-30 synthetic, API SP, OEM filter
No makeup oil over the OCI

NOTES: This oil was last changed in October 2020. Although it was a low mileage OCI, I suspect a lot of idling / warm-ups / short trips occurred over the course of the winter. This oil had the strongest smell of gasoline of any used-oil in recent memory--it needed to be changed IMHO. Did him a favor and cleaned up his engine bay!

I been using the OEM Subaru blue can, been thinking about switching to the Napa, or Wix....
Nothing but good things to say about the Wix/NAPA filters. We have driven Subarus forever and I've been using the (5)7055 filter on all our engines since around 2014 when we got our first non-EJ engine. Never have had the first problem, plus I have NAPA and Oreilly within 2-3 miles. Subaru dealer is 30 miles away.
