do you wipe the dipstick and put it back in and check again? is the car parked on level ground every time you check it?
as gab said it wouldnt be leaking enough to drop the level of the oil

its got nothing to do with him, dip sticks are for people who check oil level, just like fuel gauges are for checking fuel level :lol:
