Re: oil

Depends on if you change the filter or not.
When in doubt, put in 4.
Check the oil level.
Too low?
Add another quart.
Wait a minute...start it up...then shut it down...
Wait another minute
Check it again.
Over a quart low?
Add another quart.

Or, you could just read the owners manual.

Re: oil

The factory capacity is 6 quarts with the PH16 size filter. You will take a few oz. more with a PH16/FL1A size filter. Don't sweat the +/- too much.

Always change the filter with the oil
