That looks nasty! So what does the LL mean Flat6er? Your comment came out weird.

He thinks that it is "LL"(one is bigger and one is smaller, huh? ;) written on dipstick, but I think that he tries to read letter "F" wrong way :D
oil level is right in the middle. so - if the measurement was done on even surface and after engine was off for (in my opinion) about an hour - everything is peachy.

Hopefully it is visible, there is a L and a F.
Thanks and that is exactly what I expected to see but the marks on my dip are not that way but both L's next to each other in between the holes. I was hoping someone else had the same dip markings.

I think, like @Flat6er , your marking is a F as well.
See your picture turned below

Excellent, so why is no manual showing this? Maybe this is not an original Subaru dipstick?
So I reviewed my manual (page 11-7) and my actual dipstick and you are correct and what throws everyone is the manual drawing is not to scale and shows much smaller L and F compared to the width of the dipstick. Question Answered. Thank you Rabbelaar.
PS if anyone wants a photo of the manual picture (in case they do not have one) let me know.
