The dip I think the "official" capacity is 4.2 quarts (or was that litres?). I don't have the book on hand to check. But after I drain it, adding 4 quarts seems to get me right up to max, or at least not more than a hair above it. Regarding the oil filter: I find that even after the oil is drained, a fair bit of oil still comes out (mostly onto my hands) when I unscrew the filter. John
