Name me one thing you purchase that DOESNT benefit/satisfy your wants/needs in some way.

And yes I'm about to change oil for sake of knowing!
Hey listen, to me it's still a depreciating asset - but you can look at it anyway it suits you.

There is a very simple way to touch/smell the oil - just unscrew the fill cap on the valve cover (passenger side of the engine), then dip your fingers inside. Just make sure it's not hot you know...
