Still not enough to worry about, but more than I thought. Next time I'll suck it with my vacuum fluid extractor, but wanted to measure it this first time just for kicks. The good news is 8.8 + 0.2 = 9.0 ltr, so no need to store 0.2L anymore
. Good day.
I think 9 litres sounds right. I did my oil change today, and emptied everything, including sucking out the oil filter. I sucked out a fair amount from the filter ... and I think 180 ml mentioned above is close to the mark. I didn't measure.
Filled with 8.8 ltr and the car is showing between min=max. I am sure there is room for another 200 ml. I am going to pour that in shortly and I don't think that's an overfill. It should show max, and even if it's an overfill it shouldn't hurt.
P.S. See the image after topping up 200ml - making it 9 ltr in all. Doesn't even max out. Unless there is a problem with the sensor. Hope that's not the case.
