I'd have to go in and look in Carly again, adapter doesn't belong to me, I don't have one yet. Still on the list.

Like I mentioned above, I forgot to take pics, as I didn't even think of it at the time. Only after I got back did I start to think more & more about the way it looked. Too late, it's already been disposed of at this point. Wish I had taken some.

Blackstone Report

So, just got my Blackstone report last week - looks pretty good as far as I can tell. Sludge doesn't seem to be a big issue based on the insolubles reading.

Might have just been some sludge in the oil pan? Not sure. Either way I feel a lot better about it now. Right before I sent the oil out, I did take a look at it again in the vial they provided (as best I could) and perhaps it wasn't *quite* as bad as it looked when it came out. Either way, still glad to see that it's looking good so far.

I welcome anyone else's comments on this report, as I still am not extremely well-versed on ideal values. Thanks.
