Looks good, but how does it taste? A little soapy?(oxides); bitey?(silica); gritty?(metal). Let us know how it tastes…….

My original break-in oil and first couple of oil changes on fixed-weight mineral oil also looked very clean. I then switched to normal oil with ashless dispersant and it got a bit darker quicker, and I understand this is because the oil is holding contaminants in suspension, not necessarily a bad thing.

Mmm sweet sweet ice cream toppings. That's why it's called light sweet crude oil, right? Caramel with a hint of smoke. Could be dark chocolate like I like my ice cream topping.
