Thanks a lot for your reply
Yes, it's normal.

Indeed it is not normal at all, it is far _better_ than many other people get. Your oil level is fine anywhere between the two marks on the dipstick.

You should check the oil before engine start. Pull the dipstick out and wipe it clean. Put it back in completely and pull it out again. The oil can be any place between the two notches and is considered to be okay. If the oil it at the lower notch, then a full quart/liter is needed to bring the oil to the upper mark.
