Used oil will be opaque, can't see thru it,
New oil will be translucent, can read the dipstick thru it.

That pretty much covers it, eh?

When I put synthetic oil in a truck that burned oil it glazed the plugs in about a hundred miles and I got to do a roadside tuneup to get home. I'll never believe that a true synthetic burns at all, never mind faster. It sure might leak faster.

OK. Here's your sign. If the thing is worn out, DON'T PUT EXPENSIVE OIL IN IT! You should have put synthetic in a long time ago, before it was shot and you would still have a sound engine. Not a problem with the oil. Too little, too late.

Oils have detergents whose job is to dissolve and suspend dirty grunge. Your oil seems to be working.

What charles said. This is part of engine oil's job besides lubrication.

On the dipstick right after oil change, the center of dipstick looks dark almost like used oil look but toward outside of cable dipstick it looks like new oil, I think all oil read on dipstick should look clear an don't get why, it was changed after a 30 mile drive within 20 minutes, never neglected, it burns maybe a quart in 3000 miles an not much till more miles an then burns most of it after 1500 miles on oil change

I had a brother in law that never changed his oil, just added to it whenever it was down. He had over 100,000 miles on it when he sold it to my brother. First thing my brother did was drain the oil. He pulled the drain plug and nothing came out. He had to poke a hole with a pair of channel locks in the sludge that had accumulated in pan over the years to get the oil to drain.

Those devils didn't take the time to clean out your dipstick tube.
