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 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.

Another good reason to do the oil and fuel filter changes yourself: I got lazy today and took my 2018 F-150 KR to the dealer for oil, oil filter, and fuel filter changes. $192 for parts, $222 for labor for a total bill of $425. Ouch. Lesson learned.
