Thanks for that. This is the first time I've seen a logical explanation for the issue that we have been having with the diesel, and bought to us by a V8 petrol owner.

Swampy, I got a leg on each side of the fence.
I do still have my old WJ diesel!

Re: Diesel Dip Stick Reading ?

Standard dip-stick practice on any machine is to pull it out, wipe it, put it in, leave it a second or two, take it out and take a reading.

That sounds like foreplay.

And that would work well if the 3.0l JGC arrangement didn't drag oil up the dipstick tube to foul the reading when re-inserting the dipstick.

For consistant readings, do as described previously in this thread; lift the dipstick only 20mm to crack the seal and release the air lock, reinsert then withdraw fully to read.
