Stockpile Measure inaccurate

Mapping normal mission, and grid mission. Normal constantly gives different measurements. Grid mission gave significantly different values.

How should I be flying the mission to get accurate results using map pilot?

80% overlap with a Normal mission should be sufficient. 

The number of waypoints to draw the polygon is more likely to significantly affect the measurement than the flight pattern is.

Thanks, I had 85% overlap both directions. Nook1 was normal mission, nook3 was the same area but grid mission. 25/30 waypoints used for the polygon.

they give different values. What have I done wrong?

I did a couple of measurements and they were within about 5% of each other. If had to pick I would choose the grid mission one since it has more overlap. 

You are using the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual's visual camera which is not the best for mapping. It is on par with the Mavic Air which we do not recommend for doing any serious work.
