Have you been using Mobil1 for the life of the vehicle? If not, how long? Report looks great. Try doing one another after a couple intervals
I may have to go this route to avoid the skid plate removal headache. Thanks for posting.Ordered the adapters from Baxter Performance.

Another testament to Mobil 1 with your data. That's even better to hear M1 is providing good results (expected I hope) and for the majority of the miles. I'm sure your upkeep of Jade has helped as well.I bought Jade in Sept 2015 with 38K on her ... I used M1 0w-20 for a time then switched to 5w-30.
The filter I use has anti-drainback valve. No quarantee that all do.Does that make a mess when changing the oil do does it drain back from the filter? I wouldn't think draining back from the filter would be good in the long run because of starting empty.
Kia screwed up going gdi. Last place I worked the connecting shop was a kia dealer. Mechanics had to park at the Chinese place across the lot because all the spots were taken up by blown up kias. Lot of people got new engines out of that deal though under warranty/recall.We 'had' a 2014 Kia Sorento, 4 cyl. Started burning oil around 85K, getting worse as time went by. Of course Kia says its within normal limits.
Kia said the oil burning problem had nothing to do with the machining issue with the crankshafts...Kia screwed up going gdi. Last place I worked the connecting shop was a kia dealer.

I'm running amsoil signature series with their 15k filter. Already have my Blackstone container. I'm sending it in at around 7k. Curious to see the results.
