TGMO 0W16 Factory Fill, 46 Miles, 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, 2.5L I4 Engine

I’m 99.9% sure it’s going to be black when you change it. Happened to me before, the oil was still pretty transparent on the dipstick but pitch black on the way out
That has been my exact experience,
removing oil at ~200 miles via a fluid extractor.

The dipstick oil color is gold to amber,
and the bottom of the pan oil color is very dark brown, almost black.

Moly 660? Is that right?
Japanese manufacturers are known to use oil that are high in moly in the factory fill as well as their specific branded oil.I own a couple of Toyotas and Hondas. I have always stuck with using oils that are high in moly in my vehicles and have had excellent results. Not to say other oils will not suffice but it's interesting how the Japanese love to use oils that are high in moly.
