The dipsticks were different lengths in different years because the tubes were different lengths. As usual, you are making this much more difficult than necessary.

Right?

Turns out that catching innuendo at the end of a day spent staring at your medicine notes wasn't one of the clerkship goals.

I am extremely embarrassed by that though lol.

It does not matter if you use the NA or NB tube as long as your dipstick is long enough to get wet and you make notes of where that Mark is with the proper amount of freshly added oil. That mark will be your new full line. You may conceivably use a dipstick from a 72 Dodge Dart or an 83 F150 as long as it will reach the oil level so that you may mark it (and you may trim the excess according to the customs and practices of your people).

A dipstick is an analog measuring device that has only to be calibrated once. There are no concerns of voltage offsets and wiring schematics.

F is for failure.
It is also the correct answer.

Oh my god a related rates problem. I'm having flashbacks to high school AP calc. I did in fact suck at those!

How would you be able to tell if they're full if your dipstick only read 'L'?

You are on fire 🔥🔥🔥.

And I am chortling in my study carrel.

I do have to admit though that I lobbed those pictures over here curious what would happen. 10/10 would do again.

Oh, it is G. C will spill into D and then G before C spills to J, L and up F.

I was trying to look at the picture on my cell phone while driving on a busy highway. Didn't see the blockage in the line between C and D. Now that I'm on a full resolution computer I can also change the thread title.
