    Default Pigging oil

    Well, I've had the CDTi for nearly 2 months/5000 miles now, and I've noticed the oil is black as your boot already, despite using fully synthetic oil.

    My old DTi on fully synth would stay nice a chocolate brown for a good 4 months, then turn black, then get so black it would almost look purple.

    Also with the DTi the fully synthetic oil would be really runny on the dipstick, yet on the CDTi it's almost like grease it's that thick.

    So, did the dealer use crap oil, or does the CDTi treat oil differently to the older DTi?
