    I wanted to go with the Amsoil but the 5W30 isn't Dexos2 so I ended up ordering the Total Quartz. I will probably be doing my first non-dealer change this weekend.

    So i went ahead and changed the oil at 661 miles it was pretty dirty ive seen much cleaner oil come out of my mustang after some hard use lol i really dont think its wise to wait till the oil life monitor tells you to change it at least not the first change or two

    thanks for the picture. My Dealer used mobil but it is also Dexos 2. I will probably buy total quartz also when the free changes are done.

    It won't hurt a thing to leave the oil in. Diesel engines pump soot into the oil so it's very normal for the oil to be black after the first 5 minutes. Perfectly normal. This is why it is so important to use the right oil. The right oil is designed to handle these conditions.

    Probably because diesel fuel is related to fuel oil. Just out of curiousity...does your manual have an incorrect oil filter listed in it? Mine did.
