Here's my theory on the really dark oil. I think it seeps down from the EZ STart housing. The have it heavily greased from the factory. When I used my EZ Start I found the same stuff on my shaft.
I opened up the EZ Start and there was tons more grease in that thing than needed. I took out some of the excess grease and never had the problem with the dark stuff again.
