maw76 is on a distinguished road

Ok so first oil change was easy. Used a Fram oil filter remover the one that attaches to a 3/8 ratchet filter came off easy and loads of room to work the ratchet. Used large zip lock bag trick to keep the steering components clean. So I go to fill her up first filled the filter about 300ml, then first 5l jug then another 1 litre and then another 300 ml. So now I got 6.6 l of Pennzoil Platinum in her turn her over look for leaks all is good give a shot of gas then turn her off. Wait 15 min so oil drains down clean up everything now 30 minutes later I go to check her level was missing oil had to add another 700 ml. I don't know about you guys but 7.3 l over 6.6 l is a lot to be off that's a 12% difference. Not that I mind I prefer more oil as long as it is not passed the full mark.

So we all set out for a drive 200km later get home get the bugs off her man I thought my rubicon was bad with bugs lol check the oil again and is dead on still. Anyone else have to put more than 6.6l in to bring her up to the full mark on the dip stick?
