Default How many quarts of oil?

I've got a fella who does oil changes for $10 if you supply the necessary parts and the oil. How many quarts should I provide him with? I assume 6....?

Which engine?

Bring 5 for a 4 cyl car (4.2qt required) or 7 for a 6-cyl.

And you have what vehicle with what engine?

Also, this is in your owner's manual.

You got that right! I started thinking I was going crazy when I was putting in more then 6 quarts on my 2008! For some reason, my '04 H6 seemed to take a bit less, 6 was always safe with that with a bit to spare.

Right, that's why I thought I was crazy. Mine consistently takes a little bit more than 6 quarts. If I put 6 in, it's not quite to the full line.
