Just checked after your post.
So no rebuild and no new engine.
What RTF says is quite right. I notice if I put the whole 15 L in the container that my oil comes in, (I use Magnatec diesel), the level is just above on on the full level. After a bit of running, it settles on the lower full line below the cross-hatched markings, then it just seems to stay there until I change the oil about a year later. We don't do huge mileage, but I seldom have to add anything, unless we do a very long continuous run, and she only smokes a wee tad at cold start until warm.
