Dip Stick Lengths

Modification Details




There's a joke you see every now and then when someone says they have a low oil level.
"get a longer dip stick to reach the oil"

How Long Is Your Dip Stick?

I sometimes get asked the length of specific engine dip sticks. Either they have lost or
broken their one or they are sold a replacement and don't believe it's the correct one.

This is how we are measuring the dip sticks. With a tape measure!



The zero is butted right up against the collar of the dip stick.



The oil maximum and oil minimum are then measured off in millimeters (because fuck inches). 



Table Of Dip Stick Lengths

450 fortwo 600cc petrol
450 fortwo 700cc petrol
450 fortwo 800cc diesel 431mm 462mm

Obviously I don't own a lot of these models so if you want to help, can be trusted to do it right and know
how to correctly use a tape measure, send me the same 3 photos that you see above for your dip stick.

Email me through the site, let me know you can help, I'll reply and you can send the photos.
