Samples must be all from DI engines!
My non DI engines even the very old cars never gets that color.
The oil on my Silverado's 5.3 dipstick is still clear after 5,000 miles. And guess what? It's DI.
The oil in my T gets dark after a couple hundred miles, and it's a "non DI very old car".
The color of oil is meaningless, and I've had a couple of vehicles in the past that darkened the oil quick.
I would have changed the oil in anything I cared about long before it got as dirty as ANY of those samples. This is what I want to see when I pull the dipstick
You'd get your britches wound up tight if you ever owned a real diesel.
