I'm going to add this as my next OCI. I'm thinking abut May 1st I'll do my next OCI and then do May & Nov OCIs from now on. Maybe add 5w20 of this same oil in Nov.

Question : my car takes 4.25 quarts of oil. I have about 75% of a quart of Federated 5w30 syn blend left over from my last OCI. Should I add it to my next OCI or recycle it?

Oil doesn't go bad just sitting uncontaminated in a jug for months or even a year or two. If it did, there would be a lot of bad oil on store shelves. I don't recall ever seeing a use by date on oil.

I'm sure you noticed I have a Sonata YF...he's lucky to get away with buying a 5 quart container! :crying:
