2011 F350 oil dip stick

By Ray G.

I have been struggling to read the Dipstick since I got my truck. I have the Cable style dipstick. I can see oil about 1/4-1/2 then there is oil at the very top and all the way up the cable portion of the dipstick. Its impossible to read.
-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.
Ford should
-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.
