Oil dipstick - 2 readings

Hey,

Does anyone else get a different reading from each side of the dipstick?

Mine is the 2007 i4, which I believe uses the same dipstick as the i5, but the v8 is different. It's the one that has this marked on two sides: | L XXXX F |

Thanks

My '16 shows a different reading on both sides after it's burned some between oil changes. Different engine and different dipstick though. Had the I6 in my Trailblazer and it didn't do this. But the oil level never left the full mark on that one.
