when you do an oil change, what does the dipstick read?? full? or past full?

if you want to be real sure how much oil ya have.....

file the markings off the dipstick. put 2 or 3 litres of oil in mark where that registers on the dipstick. do the same with 5litres in. Then you know exaclty how much oil you have in it.

I've done that a few times on cat C13, C15's etc.... new ones dont always come with the markings on them.
