    This is what I got from reading the manual, don't know form sure that it is correct but it might be the reason for the time difference. This is on a 2019 Wolverine.

    1. Warm Engine to at least 148°. Idle for at least 10 seconds, shut vehicle off and wait 10 seconds to check oil, do this for a normal oil check.

    2. Warm engine to at least 148°, let idle for 10 seconds, wait at least 10 minutes before checking oil-do this for oil changes.

    So I did my 1500 mile oil and transmission fluid changes today. I had my break-in service done at the dealer so this was the first time that I had done them myself. It worked out very well. The transmission fluid was a breeze. The oil took a little longer but I was taking my time dotting all my i's and crossing my t's since it was the first time. I totally understand where you guys are come from as far as getting the level on the dipstick right though on the engine oil. I measured out the 3.5 quarts adding the 2.64 first the manual says to and then using the rest to bring the level up and it read on the lower end of the hash marks checking it after 10 seconds and ten minutes at normal temperature. I tried everything that the manual said experimenting to see what different results I might get. I did ad a couple more ounces (just a splash more being very careful) to bring it up to the center of the hash marks of the dipstick. I did check it several more times again with it being in the middle still so I'm feeling good about it. And now since I'm on vacation all week from work this week it's time to put some more miles on her.

    3.5 qts is needed. 4 qts is too much.

    I found that buying a large plastic graduated pitcher and putting 3.5 qts. in it. Now I know I have enough oil for checking after a short ride. Then I recheck the level and mark a new line on the pitcher if needed. The oil level checking process is not a confidence builder and as others have stated, it is very hard to see with the new oil. A turkey baster is what I have been using to add/remove small amounts of oil.
