This question already has an answer here:
I have a 2015 VW Tiguan 2.0 TDI, DSG box. I have just had the 30000 mile service which is oil & filter, driven home from the garage about 3/4 mile and dipped the oil to find that it is black. Spoke to the garage who told me that this is normal for a diesel as the oil removes carbons from the engine as it runs. I am not 100% satisfied with this as I think it unlikely that the oil would discolour after such a short journey. Can anyone comment either way on wether or not I am being misled?
