: Engine Deep sumps

Do you just use a standard dip stick?

I have a big deep sump and have put 5 litres of oil in, has external filter and its below bottom line on dip stick.

Yes stock dip stick, however if you have a high reving motor it is better to run the oil level a bit lower, around the bottom mark.

Thanks for that.
