First of all sorry if it's a dumb one or an obvious one. Is the oil level on the dip stick suppose to be between the 2 circles or right below the bend?
Thanks in advance and don't give me a hard time lol

Offhand, I can't remember. But your owner's manual should have that information. If you have a PDF version, you can search "oil level".

Really dumb way to mark the stick. Would it kill them to put two arrows pointing at each other instead?

The manual states the "safe" range. I assume the safe range is between the 2 circles. So do the majority of you guys keep it there or above that? I rather go with what you guys do. I just did an oil change added 7 quarts and it's right between the 2 circles.

7 for the 6.2? I thought the manual said 6, and 7 for the 6.4?
I believe the later year hellcats required more oil. All that changed was the length of the dipstick. I ordered the new dipstick so its slightly shorter than my factory 15 hellcat one. Now when doing oil changes, they will need to add slightly more oil.

7 quarts for all HC's now. Six is still fine for the earlier ones but they are now only selling 7 qt. dipsticks and recommending owners to now use 7 and get the new dipstick, even on those.

Link/reference to the source? I'm not questioning what you say (it totally makes sense), but I would like to see the source of information before I act on it. Thanks!

I can’t say for sure, but back when this first came up, I could see me reading about people not being able to read the new one and just deciding to keep it! :p

This is just one thread on it. It's been discussed in many threads and forums. If you call your dealer they wont even sell you a 6 qt. stick anymore.

Using the old one and 6 qts wont hurt anything, they are just recommending the extra qt.

Mine’s been getting 7 qts all along, but just to add to the confusion and to go along with my earlier post where I said I thought 2017s were good-to-go (which is when they made the change to the 7 qt capacity spec), mine has the 53010823AA cable-style dipstick called out for that year model in the thread you gave, but it sounds like they later went to a blade-style?

Same here...I thought my 2017 would be the blade style, but I have the cable style....which I hate!

So is there an in between stick that gives 7 qt measurement, but is cable style?
Dealer did an oil change before I got the cat last month, so not completely sure how many quarts went in.

Thanks for checking slowpoke...also if any other 2018+, non-Redeyes want to confirm back.
