OK. There is actually a guy on the BITOG oil forum that swears that's how he determines the condition of his oil. Don't think he uses a sommelier's tastevin; just takes a drip off the dipstick. Cretin. There is another guy who has a more scientific method: He heats a metal plate on his barby grill and then sprinkles a bit of the used oil on the plate and examines the residue, much like the old tribal shamans casting the bones and sprinkling with chicken blood to devine the portents. Who needs science.
