If only I had some meddling kids to help solve it :(

Basically, to my knowledge, all signs point to the Teg not burning oil. Despite it burning oil. I had someone else start it up after 3 hours of sitting and no smoke came out either. And I’ve never seen or been told it has after running.

Although there are some grey spots on there. So maybe that’s just an early sign of bad oil burning? I was expecting to see actual black on them though. Also there was some white crystallization on one or two of them. I have no idea what that means.
