Hello I have a mini city e 1000 and when I was checking the oil level, the dipstick reads with oil below the minimum and above the maximum but none between. Is there any way I can get an accurate reading?

Well thass like this ent it:


Wait a few minutes after the engine's run for the oil to settle, take the dipstick out and wipe it, put it back in, take it out again and read level, don't scrape the flat side of the dipstick against the block/dipstick tube when you put it in and take it out.
