So I might have fugged up. When I first took this measurement that read 1/8th above the minimum line, the car had been sitting for hours outside and I let it run for maybe a minute to move over into a level parking lot. I checked right after I shut the car off when it was cold.
Went out for a drive later that night, about 20 minutes, stopped again and let the car sit for maybe 5 min and measured again. This time it read just above the full line. I am thinking that the first measurement was low because car just stopped running and was cold.
