Re: Oil in exhaust?

Trust the dipstick.

Overfilling with oil will produce black smoke.

Like said chances are 1 you have fouling of the prop/shaft which will slow you down and make you produce black smoke when run hard, If you were grounded hard and if you ran the engine a lot and sucked up lts of mud its possible you sucked some into the engine, but it should clear.

Look for the simplest first....fouled prop
