Oil change trouble
I've just done my oil change on my 159 1.75 TBi, and I noticed the shop sent me the wrong oil. I've ordered Fuchs Titan GT1 5W40 and they sent Fuchs Titan GT1 Pro C-3 5W30.
I had no choice but to pour this one - 4 liters and add from the old 5W40 oil the rest of ~1 liter, to be able to move the car.
I see both are ACEA C3 rating, and as far as I know, only the viscosity varies a bit between them. I would have to drive 1500 km in the next 3 days. Should I push for a new oil change right now, or later after the trip ? Or just leave it like this for a normal 8-10K km change ?
Second question: at the service they were surprised that the old oil is black. They said for a petrol engine it should be clean/transparent after 10K km. Is this true ? I thought it always becomes black, even after 1000 km.
