Oh and I should mention that on my particular 3800, 5 quarts brings it exactly on the full mark; I mean exactly.
As you can see, Toasty, he'* specifically referring to over-filling it. That'* why we jumped on it. We can't afford to have an idea turn into something some noobie will want to try. That'* why the warnings and debate about it.
This is a very bad and dangerous thing to do. It needs to be made VERY clear why overfilling is a very bad idea.
On the other side of the equation, you have to understand that everyone here is human. And the level of frustration about oil topic after oil topic after oil topic after oil topic is getting a bit frustrating. Particularly when they all come from the same person.
This is how it works, in a sense:
After a number of posts like this, nobody is going to take you seriously, and at least a few are going to be frustrated by the sheer number of posts on a subject like oil.
From my point of view, we made the point very well in this topic to protect other members from the effects of a bad idea.
