Paul,

LOWER YOUR VOICE - WE CAN HEAR you just fine.

You are correct, but allow me to clarify. The ideal oil level is half way between the ADD and MAX levels on the dipstick. Your engine may use some oil if it is filled at a level which falls above the mid point on the stick. Key point, do NOT top off engine oil until the oil level reaches the ADD (lower) level on the dipstick.
