Green oil?

I just did the first oil change on my 2014. Has a 1000 miles on it. The oil that came out is dark green, what is this crap? It still was pretty clean but was some terrible looking stuff.
Glad I changed at a 1000.

Brad Penn dino oil. Usually used in high performance engines with flat tappet cams for the high zinc content.
Built, not bought.

I would guess assembly lube, (white) mixed with brown oil.

The only time I've seen green oil was after changing the oil when looking for a leak. Usually engine dye is green which with glow under a black light to help find a leak. But I wouldn't see a reason why dye would be in your oil...

I remember back in the 60's Havoline oil was a dark green in color. I always thought it looked used. I would think this is breakin oil, which should be good until the first recommended oil change.
