If you want to see some REAL scary stuff, wait until the oil is really cole, like 30 or so overnight. Then, run the engine for about 5 minutes. Shut it down and look in the filler cap.

I did this years ago for some reason or other and saw what looked like a chocolate milkshake!

Until the oil is HOT enough LONG enough, condensation will not evaporate and you have an oil and water emulsion. Long trips are better than short, so take the LONG way to work and enjoy that M-B drive longer. :big grin:
