2019 Hyundai Sonata is black inside the tailpipe

Inside tailpipe black

Some black is probably normal. Black comes from unburnt gas. How is your gas mileage?

Yup, that’s gonna happen.

Not uncommon at all, especially because you have direct injection. I wouldn’t worry about it.


Dry soot is OK. Welcome to direct injection.
Oily soot maybe a problem. A sign of oil consumption.
Don’t mistake water condensation for oil.
How many miles on it?
