I got a question regarding the oil indicator......

But i notice just now....when starting the car the oil indicator shows full...and after about 15 minutes of driving it's back to its normal position..half.....

Is there anything wrong with my car?

I've had this problem back in June when I first drove my car off the dealers lot and filled the tank. Apparantly the problem was solved with STP Fuel Injection Cleaner. Wait until the fuel tank is empty then pour the entire bottle of Fuel Injection Cleaner in your tank an then fill your tank up with gas or oil or whatever you use in your country.
Drive around until your tank is empty again then re-fill it with gas or oil or whatever you use in your country and you're set!

Normally the gauge reads empty until the car is started. It could be the fuel sending unit inside the tank.
