You might want to mention a cold engine (burn risk) and one that hasn't turned over recently (hasn't been started) as a lot of oil can remain in the sump and excess oil levels will result in an over pressured engine leading to damaged piston heads also be wary of the road camber (arched road) as can give false readings if significant
