If you're unsure about what's in there I'd suggest doing a full oil change. That way you'll know for sure what and how much has gone in.

That's the one I use. But perhaps don't rely on the volume graduations on the side of the tank.
No, they're wrong! I filled mine with dyed water and stuck labels on the side to mark the 1/2 litres.

So it's been confirmed..........I'm a complete tit 🙄
I moved my car onto a more level surface today after coming home from work,let it sit for 10 minutes and then checked the oil.
Level is ok according to the display, looking at where I checked it before it was on a slight decline (very slight) so I'm guessing even the slightest decline/incline will give a false reading.
Will check it again in a few days to confirm but so far so good 👍

Ok as in back at “full” or just not telling you to add 0.5l?

That's an expensive cure for the stupidity of an electronic oil level indicator!
