How fast does your oil go black?

Just as the title states.

My regular truck, an E99. Has 220000 Km's on it and the oil goes black within an hour or so of driving after a change. It doesn't use a noticeable amount between changes.

I just figure that was the nature of the beast.

I just picked up a parts truck and I've put about 800km on it. I checked the oil when looking it over and it looked only slightly darker than out of the bottle. Seller tells me it has 2000km on the oil. I assumed BS but after my driving it 800km it still looks nice and clean. This engine also has almost twice the mileage as mine.

It's kind of interesting. So these two trucks are opposit....which one is more to the norm.?

I was planning on getting rid of this motor when i strop the truck because of the mileage bbut after seeing this its gotta have very minimal blow-by to keep the oil so clean so I think it's worth keeping now.

My 01 has 188000 miles on it so in km's it's close to yours, when I change oil it is just slightly darker than when I put it in. It may be the oil your using. When I was in high school I worked as a grease monkey in a logging outfits shop. We used strictly Delo and the engines in the crummies, heavy trucks, and equipment would do the same thing, turn black almost immediately after changing oil. Cant remember what oil they changed to but after that the oil wouldn't get as ugly looking. It didn't make any difference other than color, all the oil analysis with delo was the same as with the new oil

My buddy has a cummins with 300'000 miles on it and the oil never goes black.

My truck blackens oil instantly.
I use rotella or delo depending on what's available.

it doesn't help because there is still 1+ quart(s) left over inside the oil rails, hpop res, and all the lines. Cummins dont have an heui system so they don't have as much dirty oil left mixing with the clean oil.
