Digital Oil Gauge, Truth or Lies?

My digital oil level gauge showed one bar above the bottom line, so I checked the stick and found it full.

Do you guys trust the digital one or ignore it? I know I can trust the stick and wonder why the digital one is off...

PS - the 987's ONLY have the digital one... I do hope they made it work better than the one in my 1997!

I do not trust the fuel gauge. I have a calibrated wood stick I shove into the filler to check the fuel level.

The oil level gauge was way before the Boxster. At our work on cars days over the years we have done many oil changes. Never use the stick. I pulled mine out about 6 years ago just to see how long it was.

One bar is about a cup of oil.
