Thanks for all the replies. I guess I'll stick with checking the oil when it's stone cold. This way there is no shadow of a doubt that all the oil is down in the pan. I have had this car now for 3 months now, and I am still trying to establish an oil consumption rate. I recently did a 500 mile around trip to VA from NJ and she used up some oil. This I would imagine is due to 1) switching down to 10W-40 and 2) cruising at a steady 70-75 mph for 5 hours each way. Thanks again for the replies.
