    2012 Oil Capacity error?

    So I check my service manual..and it shows the same thing...4.3 LITERS of oil, or 4.5 US Gallons.

    I DID read in the service manual that the oil system was redesigned for 2012, got rid of a scavenge pump etc..but surely 4.5 GALLONS must be a typo...I assume since 4.3 Liters converts to 4.5 Quarts..that's what they must have meant.
