Oil level check

Can anyone explain why the oil level on my Outback has to be checked exactly after five minutes after switching off. I do this every time without really knowing the reason apart from it says so in the handbook!

I have no idea of the exact reason they wouldn't want you to check it after 5, it could possibly be todo with heat soak from other engine components at a guess.

Sorry I couldn't be of more use

Extract from handbook......For diesel engine models make sure to check engine oil level 5 mins after engine stops . Waiting any longer will prevent accurate oil measurement....page 11.20...When I check in accordance with book its ok if I wait say 10 mins the level rises. There must be a reason but I don't know what  it  is.
