Good advice. I'm guessing you fill it right up to full on the dipstick? My old engine didn't burn any oil and neither does the new one but if I filled them up to the full mark on the dipstick both would drip. The old one liked to be 1/4" below F. Haven't learned where the new one likes to sit but it's probably similar.

Much like the radiator, engine oil will find its own level.
