Default Gray oil

I flushed out my bilge and during the next oil change it came out gray? Previously the oil appeared ok? Any thoughts? Possible the oil dip stick o ring let water in?

Probably not the case but? Monitor your oil closely from here on. Clean the dipstick . keep an eye on it . Milkshake is not good..

NO! Leave it!

The "gay oil" jokes will be epic.

Can you describe this bilge flushing? How deep was the water, over the dipstick tube?

I flooded the bilge in an effort to remove leaves and other debris until the bilge pump came on. I then performed the oil change and so far it seems clean. I’m at a loss sorry for previous spelling I was using mobile.

oh good, only a couple inches. It's a concern when people put a couple tons of water in the bilge of a boat sitting on a boat trailer..
Any chance that the hose got pointed where shouldn't of been during the filling process?

I'm pretty sure you can't flush out a gay gray owl that's in your bilge. They are doubly protected, big fines.

So you're saying that gay oil is not ok? Who's the dipstick now?

It is not acceptable to be non accepting of gay oil.

In fact, I understand it is to be openly embraced.

Who are we to judge?
