    Yep, I do the same thing and I fill the oil filter with fresh oil (as much as possible depending on the angle of installation) before starting the engine.

    I’ll try 5 quarts. I’ve added that much before and I’ve noticed that it’s still around he halfway mark with all 5.

    Good info on this thread. Does anyone know the inner diameter of the radiator overflow hose to the reservoir by any chance? :D
