Question Oil level...middle or full?

Well I have always put customers oil in the middle of the dip stick, always thought that was normal to people but some have problems with it and other cars are picky and set off a "ADD OIL" light

What do you set your oil for? MIDDLE or FULL

Always Full !
more oil = cooler happier engine internals
less oil = hotter no so happy engine internals
less oil + customer with no brains who never checks oil = failed molecular bond between wallet and cash !
