Oil is dead center between L and F, need to top off yet?  Had an oil change in April.  And a regular SAE 40 like I'd buy at Advance Auto etc.?

Also, coolant looks full, am I reading this right?

No need to top off the oil. Wait till it is at the fill (add 1 gallon) or a bit lower. Typically your oil has to be 4 gallons low before your engine will be starved. Good Luck, TomC
