How do I read that arrow shaped dipstick tip so see when my oil needs topping off?

Man, I can't even find a picture on Google to put in here...

if i can remember correct, the bottom the top line is what your objective is,, the second from the top is litre lower than full, the bottom line means you need oil..
basically you want to keep it as close to the top line as possible, once it reaches the second line, you need to add a litre.
