Use that if you want, but that does not account for the little bit of oil that gets left in the motor. When I changed the oil myself and put it in it took less than 8.5L to get the oil level marker to the top arrow (and this was with allowing the oil to drain for a while until it was slowly dripping out at the end). I think if you out in the full 8.8L you will overfill which can cause serious engine problems. For anyone changing the oil I suggest putting in 8L and then checking your oil level indicator afterward. If it is on the low side I recommend putting in only 0.25L at a time and rechecking the level...
