Re: How much oil

Mate you only need to use 5lt.5.5is from totaly empty, say after a rebuild or sumthing like that.Make sure you fill the oil filter before you put it on, then the rest of the oil in the crank case.

Re: How much oil

the sump capacity may be 5.5 litres but the oil filter holds .5 of a litre.
if you change the oil filter you are gonna have to buy 2 bottles unless you can buy a 1 litre bottle which i'm sure you can.

Re: How much oil

I have been doing oil changes on Falcons for 12 years, and ive never had to put more tham 5 lt in the engine.
If you measure how much comes out you wont even get 5lts.
The 5 lt will cover the sump and filter.

Re: How much oil

I only use 5 litres in mine and I always change the filter. This gives me oil up to about 4/5th full on the dipstick. If I put in 5.5 litres it would end up overful!

Re: How much oil
