I think mid-level is right. Oil expands when it gets warm, let alone 8+ quarts.

Somewhere on this site I read where someone had continuously filled their engine with oil right up to the full mark and it always went down to about mid point on the dip stick. As I recall they at first thought it was some mysterious leak.
