Today I was adding a quart of 5w30 to my 454. The Vortec 454 uses a vertical-ish tube that goes into the intake manifold like some of the early small blocks...at 11F the oil is thick enough that the tube fills up because the oil doesn't flow fast enough to get out of it's own way!

THE VIBE ONLY USES 4.5 ON A OIL CHANGE,SO I ALWAYS HAD .5 QT LEFT OVER.I WOULD LEAVE THE X-TRA IN THE QT "PLASTIC" CONTAINERS.WITH THE VARYING TEMP CHANGES APPARENTLY IT FORMED MOISTURE INSIDE THE CONTAINER.THE X-TRA OIL WAS STORED OUTSIDE.I POURED THE CONTAMINATED OIL IN A GLASS JAR & LET IT SIT FOR A FEW DAYS,THE WATER SETTLED TO THE BOTTOM.I CHANGE MY OWN OIL & DO IT WHEN ITS HOT,I LET THE MOTOR COOL DOWN B4 I POUR THE NEW OIL IN.SURE I'VE SEEN GRAY CONDENSATION ON THE DIP STICK ALSO,BUT THATS BEEN A LONG TIME BACK.
