Might have to try something like this. There just does not appear to be a clear transition line from wet to "dry". It seems like there is still oil around the sides and part of the face above the full mark, but not completely across the flat surface. It is like a slow tapering off vs. a more defined "line" as an ending point.
I miss my dirty oil that showed up so well when checking the level
