I am currently running a homebrew of: 4 qts of Rotella T syn 5w40 1/2 qt of M1 0w40 and 7 oz of VSOT I added the VSOT about 2000 miles into the OCI and the next time I checked the oil (and every time thereafter) I noticed that the oil has "crept" or "climbed" up the dipstick several inches. It takes several dip/wipe iterations to clear the dipstick tube and actually see the oil level. So to make a long post longer...is this good? Does it show that the oil is clinging to metal parts? Also, I always check the oil in the morning after the car has sat all night.
