I would never do something like this, but you might be prepared for some smart a$$ responding to your post by recommending that you wipe off the dip stick and take a second reading.
Mind you, I would never do such a thing and I don't condone mean spirited people who would stoop so low, but now that I'm thinking about, taking such advice, (even if it comes from a real jerk) might not be such a bad idea. I would hope that the folks on this forum would be nice enough to avoid responding with such an obvious suggestion, but you never know. Truth-be-told, taking a second reading couldn't hurt.
My wife says I should practice being "nicer", whatever that means. So I have avoided suggesting that you take a second reading because such advice would no doubt be taken as unkind, but not everyone is blessed with such a level headed wife.
