Key is to put small amounts...
No the key is to read the manual. Adding small amounts will only confuse the e-dipstick.

OP. Dealership will top it off for you. Obviously, not enough oil was put in the car during the oil service. Your car isn't going to burn a qt of oil in 5hrs.

There is a lot of misinformation being given out here. Adding too much can be just as damaging. Again people, RTFM!
