    Yes we all know the oil dipstick on our cars are terrible to read. Well the kind folks at Craven Speed in Portland OR are willing to help. This company is most often known for producing some very cleaver parts for Mini Coopers. In the past they produced a Mini Dip stick that solved a bunch of problems for that car.

    Craven Speed is looking for someone willing to stop by with their Fiesta ST so they can look at our Dip stick issue. They may be able to quickly come out with an after market Dip stick that is much easier to read.

    If you live in Portland and willing to stop by please contact Kellen Russel Kellen@cravenspeed.com


    Thank you

    I'd definitely buy an aftermarket, accurate dipstick, that's easier to read.

    I want to replace the stock one with one that is easier to read. I am on the wrong coast to have them use mine as a test bed.

    Mission accomplished: I visited Craven Speed this past Friday and they were able to get the information they needed. They also mentioned they may be working on a dead pedal for our cars. If I receive any information I will let you know.

    The dipstick is the easiest to read from any car I've owned. What's the problem exactly??

    Not sure Randy, I was asked to bring the car to see if they could fabricate something more easily readable. The prototypes they showed me had indentations that allowed the oil to "catch" a bit better and get a more accurate reading.
