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....
