Re: What A Dipstick!!!!
Cloverleaf, or Quadrifoglio , badges denote variants of Alfa Romeo cars where the name denotes the high-end of the range in comfort and engine size, but previously denoted Alfa Romeo racing cars in the pre-Second-World-War era. The image first appeared in 1923 when Ugo Sivocci presented one prior to the start of the 14th as a good luck token to the team. This became the symbol of competition Alfas, denoting higher performance.
The badge has been used recently on performance versions of various Alfas but has now become a corporate symbol too, hence why it is on dipstick grips.
Have you just changed the oil or topped it up?
Are you sure that you pulled the dipstick out, wiped it clean, put it back in and then took the reading? Was the oil cold?
