Hi Roger,

when you wipe it off you drop it in the hole but dont screw it down, then check level.

From my experience it never seems to go down and it was last checked in September.


from the manual ...

"Checking and topping up
Unscrew (counter clockwise) and remove the dipstick.
Wipe off oil. Reinstall oil dip stick do not screw it
Remove again and check that the oil level is
between the MAX and MIN markings on the dipstick.
Top up oil as required (use the dip stick tube to fill).
For oil grades and capacity: See the chapter ?Techni-
cal Data?.
IMPORTANT! The oil level should always be wit-
hin the MAX and MIN range marked on the dip-stick. "
