    Another Oil Question please help !!!!

    I have a 2007 F-12x it has 20hrs and I am doing my 1st oil & filter change. I extracted oil from both spots on the motor I extracted 5.5L approximately 5.8 quarts. I replaced with 4.5 quarts but still was 1/2 quart low I add 1/2 quart and its was showing a little high. Any explanation why it came with 5.8 quarts from factory ?? Should I leave it with the 5 quarts ?? Any input will be appreciated

    4.5 quarts is plenty. Many pump out much more out than was put in due to fuel dilution of the oil. I many times get .5 to 1 extra quart back out.

    Only put in 4.5 or even 4Qts. The fuel dilution is why there was more than factory. JR knows what he is doing.....Trust him
