S.C. Express will become famous soon enough

I bought a 5.1 gallon jug of Penzoil platinum and two (1) quart bottles. A K&N filter. When I drained the oil the dealer put in after 4500 miles of use, only 5 qts came out.
Anyways I poured all three bottles in, fired it up and leak checked it. Closed the hood and did not bother checking the level. Checked it 2k miles later, it was a tick above full, just 1-2mm above the mark. 7 quarts is perfect depending on the oil filter you buy. Some vary in the amount they hold but not enough to make a difference realy.
