i noticed that recently. but i have been using the same oil. what has changed was the oil filter i was running. i have to use a certain filter due to the sandwich adapter plate that's connected to my oil cooler. the co. i was buying them from recently changed the filter (different part #) i think it no longer has an anti-drain back valve. i can restart the motor within a few minutes of turning it off and it registers on the gauge immediately. but if i start it cold (in the morning) or after a few hours parked, it takes a few seconds to show on the oil gauge.
