    Oil level reading on dipstick too high?

    Good evening! I recently aquired a used mercedes C300e (estate) (year 2020) with 34.000km on the clock. Today i decided to check the oil level and discovered that it was too high, as far as i could see. From the attached image you can see that the level is almost 10mm above the maximum mark. I...
