I'm having an issue with oil consumption on my V-Ride that I thought was fixxed but it's still reading low on the dipstick. In an idea to see if something was wrong with the dipstick or maybe part of it was broken I closely examined it and compared it to the dipstick for the Kawasaki Kai engine on my BOP mower. I found that the dipstick on that mower is much longer and that the Scag dipstick measures 8 and 1/16. Is it possible that I'm using the wrong length dipstick and thus why I'm getting a low oil reading. Just trying to rule everything out. Anyways if you have a V-Ride what the length of the dipstick? It seems strange that the Quick 36, which has a smaller engine, would have a longer dipstick. Thanks in advance.
