    Between max & min is a huge gap. Don't think anyone here can guess by how much the lost are.

    You need to top it up until max level to know how many liters needed to top up back to max leh, so do that first. If just 0.5 ltr to top up then still rather normal, but if 1 liter or above then considered too much already.

    From what i understand, there is a slightly lower engine oil level after a new service with new oil filter. The engine oil went into the new oil filter causes the level of engine oil drop. You can follow what sifu 6UE5t's suggestion, top up the engine oil and monitor again.

    Normally mechanic after start engine and check for leaks, will Switch off, wait a while then check level again. This is to make sure level is correct after filling up oil filter also....:driver:

    If you are using same viscosity before and did not encounter this problem, on next oil change, change back to previous oil brand.
    I have a friend encounter this problem before but for him is he changed from 5w-40 to a 5w-30. The viscosity for his car probably to thin, change back to 5w-40 then okay....:driver:
