The oil looks pretty good. Transparent caramel color and not burnt but then again its not that long ago that I changed it. I always use 5W-20 as per the manual but did toss in a half a quart of 10W-30 about 500 miles ago to top it off cause I was taking a road trip and its all I had on hand at the time. Wouldn't think that a half a quart would make make any difference. I read rumors that people were recommended 5W-30. I'm gonna trailer it home next weekend. I'll check the filter and drain and probe the bottom of the pan to see if there is any sludge.
