Yesterday was a big day.
We bought our 2012 Fusion summer of 2015 with 25k miles on it. The previous owner always had it serviced at the Ford dealer. I have always run MC SB 5W20 in it. Until yesterday. I have been reading here on BITOG and pondering. It now has almost 118k miles on it. We moved from WI to southern NC. Yesterday I changed oil and put in Castrol EDGE 5W30. After in put in the 5.5 quarts I pulled the funnel out and was going to wipe it off and put it away, when I just happen to look at it and see that the permanent black film that has been in it for a long time has been cleaned off where the oil touched it. Crazy, I have never seen anything like that.
Then I was wondering if the inside of my engine looked like that funnel and it is going to clean it up as well?

The good part is it will.
The bad part is whatever was stuck to your funnel is now in the oil, or oil filter. 😉 Swap out the oil filter in between now and the next change if it cleans that much.

I believe it. I had something similar happen when I used Valvoline Nextgen conventional years ago. As I finished changing the oil, I took a clean paper towel, blotted some valvoline nextgen on it and wiped the underside of the engine oil cap and it took off all the solidified oil vapors that had accumulated throughout the years. I do this on every oil change to clean everything up and that was the only oil that has cleaned off oil cap varnish.

When working as a mechanic we always sprayed our funnels clean with brake or carb cleaner and let them dry out

I can’t figure out what MC SB 5w20 oil is?? Can’t think of a oil the MC Fits with. I’m assuming SB means silver bottle.

The Edge might put a nice varnish finish inside that plastic funnel.
