On my 2003 S, if I make a short stop, such as for gas, when I turn the key back on there is a countdown timer that starts counting down from 1 hour before the oil level will show. When the car has been sitting for a while, that countdown timer starts at 4 seconds. Sometimes a gas stop is long enough though that turning the key shows the timer starting at 4 seconds. After 13 years, my dash oil level gauge is starting to do a little more of the +/- variability. My indy garage told me that each bar on the gauge was some small fraction of a quart, like 1/10 of one, but I don't recall exactly and have been too lazy to look at the owners manual. I have heard the newer P cars don't have a dipstick.
