Had my dealer charge the oil in my 2019 . Before leaving I checked the oil level and I was surprised that the oil looked liked it had never been changed. The truck was moved from the service bay to the front of the dealership. I went back in inquired. I was told " its a diesel , they all do that - can't get all the oil out when changing , so the new and old mix.

Don't think I have seen that in any of the diesel tractors on the ranch - which we service ourselves.... it takes a couple of hours before I see any change

I change my own oil and that looks about right. It gets dirty after the first start up. When it's time to change, mine is blacker than that.

I actually changed my oil the same night I responded to this thread. Dipstick looked the same as yours. I took a picture but this site doesent seem to let me upload photos from my phone.

Remember warm up truck drain oil change filter 6.5 quarts.whenever checking the dipstick turn engine off for 15 mins to allow all oil to drain back into pan per manual.

I used to change my dad's 1965 Mercedes diesel many years ago. Man, that oil was dirty! I changed my 2013 F150 5.0 yesterday and I would much rather do the 3.0 any day over that one- both my trucks have Fumoto valves but the 2013 will dump oil everywhere when you try to remove the filter. I can always do the 3.0 without spilling a single drop.

My 2013 is sitting in the garage with cardboard under it until the oil quits dripping off the chassis.

3.0 is the cleanest oil change operation, like you said not a drop spilled.

I agree 100% had a 3.5 booster before this and the filter was horizontal on the front of the engine and it would get oil everywhere
