    Yep I noticed it when I was getting it ready to ship it back down to WA, But what sucks is that I cant see it so I have no clue where it is coming from. I have called around about UV oil dye and no one has a clue on what im talking about...

    Park it over cardboard. You might have to remove the protective plates.

    Well the truck got put on a boat yesterday heading for Tacoma.

    No I have not switched oil. I've been running valveoilne 10w30 since I've had it.
