We have 175 miles on the car. It dawned on me to check the oil level given the concerns of many here about fuel contamination. Here's the dipstick 14 hours after the last shut off. It's a little hard to see, but it's halfway up from the fill mark to the spiral. I'm sure they put 5 qts. in....probably with a gun. I'd be curious to see what others taking delivery are seeing for oil level on their brand new vehicle? The important thing is to track it from here.

@sba I joined the site, but I'm good with whatever comes out of here. I have no worries about it. Just curious. Our 22 gained a little 'volume' over its time between changes.

Good luck!

Hey Just checked mine and it’s high as well.
I will be contacting dealer tomorrow but kinda weird is this high. Have you gotten any answer from Subaru?
I haven't contacted anyone. This is the factory fill. I'll be paying attention to where it goes from here and noticing any gas odor. This subject isn't new. Our 22 had a little gain too, but not enough to smell gas.
