dash oil indicator

A week after my first "dash oil" post: I've now concluded that my oil level guage is VERY sensitive to the angle of the car. A slight front down angle will increase the reading, and vice versa. A slight right side angle will decrease the reading dramatically. (Haven't tested the vice versa on side angle).
In the same place in my garage in the mornings the guage always reads one segment from max. A few hours later after parking on a slight right side down angle it read one segment below min. ... then back at home it read back to "normal" - one below max. - these are very slight angles - but they do appear to make a difference. All readings are after the timer has cycled to a final reading. Does anyone else have similar observations?
