Oil capacity

Then no wonder we get the add 1 ltre warning soon after an oil change when we have filled only 8.8 with the filter. You will see in my previous post that I filled with 9 litres and it was still way below the max. So it won't hurt to fill with 9.2 litres when changing oil with the filter.
From my experience, 8.8L includes the filter capacity. What you posted is not definitive.
