2011 F350 Diesel oil dipstick

By Ray G.

First the problems:
-The factory dipstick is nearly smooth, while being extracted the oil is wiped from the stick by the serpintine tube
-Latent oil in the tube is picked up on the way up further obscuring the reading.

The solution:
the solution is rather obvious:
-Make the stick rougher so that the oil is not wiped away by the tube.
-Find a way to clean the tube so that latent oil does not contaminate the reading.
