2003 C4S Checking Oil Level

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model: 4S; Year: 2003; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 43,000;

I found only two questions on checking the oil level in the archives. I use the countdown dashboard indicator but the car should be level. No place is level, as every service station, at least in the east, seems slightly sloped to drain. So I measure the oil level, then start it up, turn the car around and measure it with the car facing the other direction in the same spot. Sometimes there is about a 1/3 to 1/2 liter difference in the two measurements. So . . . should I average the two? Double check with the dipstick? Thanks for any advice.
