Which way should this dipstick be placed? When placed in with the bend facing towards the engine it gives a different reading from when placed facing the opposite way. There is not a great deal of difference between the readings so I do not believe that it matters greatly just wondering if anyone knows.
The car is a 1.25 Duratec ford fiesta if it matters
The difference in the readings is about 1/3 of the distance between the min and max.
(pointless question I know I am just curious)
