912E dipstick

The manual says 3.7 quarts when changing oil and filter but my dipstick showed that 3 quarts filled the crankcase. I got a dipstick with a temperature gauge from Mainely Custom for Christmas that has the low mark where my original dipstick has the high mark and the high mark agrees with 3.7 quarts being a full crankcase. It seems that my original dipstick was mis-marked. Do you know the correct measurement for the low and high fill marks from the tip or are you aware that there was a dipstick problem that was just never corrected in my car? Both dipsticks are the same length from the tip to the cap.
