It's normal I think. Our 1.6 also has an oil and filter change every 6000 miles. Did a forte engine flush last time too. New oil went black pretty much straight away. Same for a lot of diesel engines.

Every single diesel I've owned has had fresh oil go black in a matter of days. Nothing to worry about.

Google "why does diesel oil turn black" for the reasons why.

tyvm for reply's any one using 2 stroke oil in diesel and if you are does it keep the engine cleaner inside?
On a previous forum (Landrover) many members used two stroke in their TD4 (BMW) engined Freelander, many members raved about reduced noise and improved fuel consumption. In my opinion it's just a waste of money and you would be better off paying for premium grade diesel from one of the Oil company majors who spend a fortune developing additives for the modern day common rail injection engines.
