oil color

Sorry, maybe this should go in the "general discussions"....

I changed my recently for the first time. Maybe a thousand miles ago? When I bought the truck, it had the dpf and everything on it as well as a Bullydog PMT. When I drained the oil, it was black as black could be. After reading some stuff here on the website, I learned that that was probably normal cuz of the regen cycle.

So between the time I bought the truck, and did the first oil change (1000 miles ago) I had installed the spartan and deleted the dpf/cat. No more regen.

I'm getting ready for a 3000 mile round trip to Pennsylvania, so I check the oil just to be proactive... Its getting pretty dark already. Is this normal for a diesel? I'm still kind of new to this stuff. And, not knowing what was in it prior to me buying it, I went ahead and put Mobil 1 SuperSyn in it. Not sure if that matters.

My question with out all of the BS was: "Will the oil in a diesel truck, with no regen, still turn black right away....?"

Thanks in advance. You guys are always a huge help.

your oil will ALWAYS soot up. Nothing to worry about. But for sh!ts and giggles. Get an oil annalysis done during your next service.

Just some odds and ends. A couple of doo-dads, here and there.
