Oil is black after changed. What to do?

After each oil change, the oil is immediately black again. I dropped the pan, cleaned and reinstalled. Same result.

What can be done to have cleaner appearing oil? Or should I just give up now?

I have thought about using the "10 minute Engine flush" off the shelf and then running a short period with ATF.


Thanks for any input.
