This is a tub of oil. Note, there is no metal floating in it. This is fantastic news. I had prepared myself for the disappointment of seeing a sheen on the surface of this. The lack of visible metal in this oil is invigorating. Confidence building. Exuberation ensued.
This is drain of the 500 mile oil change. The purple dye is still intact. It’s been refilled with 5 more quarts of 5w30 Royal Purple and a new Mobil1 filter. My first event of the year is the Charlotte Match Tour, followed two weeks later by the Optima USC Event at NOLA. The car is ready.
