Hi all,

I have a silly question about topping off the oil...and it is how do I know when I should be topping off my oil? I check the dipstick religiously and the oil level appears fine...about half way above the top line and the top of the indicator.

What level does everyone allow this to drop to before they add oil?

Thanks!

I try to keep the oil level close to the top of the indicated range on the dipstick. You probably want to check out the various threads on the "proper" way to measure the oil level in the car.
