997 Oil level measurement

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model : 2006 911 carrera s --997; Year: 2006; Mileage: 10,900;

The coefficient of thermal expansion of oil is such that it is probable that there is a volume change of 1/2 to 3/4 of a quart from cold(say 30 degrees F) to hot(say 200 deg F). At what temperature should the oil level reading be taken? What do the various marks on the electronic level gauge mean in terms of quarts of oil? Is the full range 1 quart?
