I changed the oil on JeNNY today. I was a little shocked at how dark the oil was with only 750miles on it. Now JeNNY has 5W20 Mobil 1 synthetic oil in her with a FRAM oil filter spun up.
This is a quote from an engine forum.
that's completely normal. There are detergents in the oil that clean up all the soot and carbon deposits in your engine. The oil turns black because of the deposits it has cleaned from your engine. If it didn't turn black, that would mean either, A) your engine is completely clean (never going to happen), or B) There are no detergents in your oil, and the deposits are still clinging onto your engine parts..
