That SAE40 Castrol that I recently poured in Oscar's crankcase is as transparent as water!

I can't even SEE it on the dipstick! I have to check my oil level by FEELING the dipstick!

Next time I'll choose a darker oil!

Oil Dye Job?

Hi Hal, don't worry, unlike people, who's hair gets lighter colored with age, your buddy Oscar will blacken that oil right up as a natural thing!

answer to hal I work at bakery

There are dye's that can be used, the mixers are jacketed and freon use, to run threw the jacket to cool the dough to a constant temperature. Now glychol is used and is dyed to alert to an imediate leak which I have never seen by the way or we would have blue dough. So if you want blue oil email me N8ygn@aol.com Have you ever baked bread at 2000 lbs. ever 15 minutes. I have.
 
Rather than Dye my oil...

...what other brands of good 40 weight oil are darker in color?

Pennz? Mobil?

I have some Slick too...

I have some Slick too...it's Outer's "GunSlick", which I use to keep the actions in my rifles well lubed.

It's way too heavy for engine use.

I'm really getting some chuckles from this thread...

Hal, I use Valvoline SAE 40 wt, and although it's pretty light in colour, I can still make it out against the dipstick.
