    Earlier this week i changed my oil with the usual 5 qt container of 5W20 oil then added a qt to make it 6. This evening I checked the dipstick oil level and saw that the level was significantly above the max level. I looked at the supposed 5 gal container and noticed that stated 5 liters or 1.32 gallons (I got in on sale at Autozone). I did a conversion on this and calculated 5.28 qts. So my oil level was approx 6-1/4 qts. I took out the extra 1/4 qt.

    Next time I'll look at the 5 qt label.
