How black is your oil?

I did my first oil change this weekend and couldn't believe how black the oil was that came out, it looked like liquid coal. The oil had just over 5000 miles on it. Please tell me this is normal.

I'm not deleted. Another good reason to delete then. Thanks for your expertise!

Mine is stock. The oil is black and appears to be a void for light. I fear space and time will collapse around my drain pan during a change.

Time to delete.

That's funny. I was actually shocked on how black it looked. Anyone know why it's so black compared to a deleted one? Maybe soot in the oil?

Yep its the soot from the EGR. Before i delete the oil came out like sludge. It was thick and nasty. Now the oil turns slightly black but stays the same consistency. You will be amazed how clean the oil stays after a couple oil changes after deleting.

Has anybody tried the bypass oil filter assembly from BPD thats supposed to filter down to a quadzillonth micron(Im joking I dunno)? I have the upgraded BPD EGR and wondered if running this would help, and maybe pay itself back if I dont have to change the oil so much.

I drive a tractor trailer for a living and start my day looking at a dipstick. I am amazed at how quickly the oil gets black.

Ah I remember the days, change oil, drive it around the block and boom it black.
Deleted is much better, but it still goes black just not nearly as bad or anywhere near as quick.

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

Yep!
With the 6.4L 100% bone stock between 1-2 hours of use the oil turns black as hell.
