Manual says 4L for oil change. I only put 3.5L and my dipstick is showing just above the half point mark. Last time I put 4L I remember having my dipstick above the full line, so this oil change I put less to not risk overfill. But shouldn't the 4L in the manual bring the oil level to the halfway mark? Then you have the +/- for fudge?

Anyone else experienced that putting the amount in the manual brings the oil level above the F mark?

Ok thank you. Since the line is just over the half mark and I'm not burning oil, I'll just leave it as is. I should check oil levels every month anyway, so I'll continue to do that. Also being new oil it's a pain to figure out where exactly the level is, it's so transparent. I'll wait for it to burn in about 1 or 2 km
