Jk I actually overfill anyway so I'm like 4.5 quarts. But that actually sounds like a more cost effective option than the KillerB pan if it really picks up two quarts. Might be worth looking into for that cost...............
4.2 is correct for oil changes.
5 qts is the TOTAL capacity. You're only required to put 5 quarts in when you're dealing with a fresh (dry) engine. Per the FSM.
Very good and complete post fahr_side. Thanks!
