Default 2005 passat tdi oil capacity

Forgive my ignorance, but I've searched here and the owners manuals and I can't for the life of me find the oil capacity for a 2005 passat tdi with the 2.0L engine! Can anyone help me out?
Thanks in advance,

The specs say 3.6L w/ oil filter change. However I have put more than that in since I also suck out all the oil from the oil cooler.

Same as MOGolf. I suck out all the oil I can get with the dip tube of the Pela, and the engine takes four litres of oil, getting to just above the halfway point between high & low on the dipstick.

I have always let the dipstick tell me when I have put enough oil in, not the quantity in the manual anyway.
It is useless getting angry at your car: don't let nuthin' whup you that can't talk....
