The obvious then, find the 'best' way and repeat each time after it sits. Next time you change the oil/filter determine how much oil you are going to be running in your engine and mark the dip stick at that level for the full mark. I run a total of 9 quarts and in doing so the oil is above the traditional full mark thus we scribed a new line on the dip stick.

Thanks Steve. I haven't completely figured out the "best" way yet, but I'll give it a shot!
