Sadly I have no idea since I neglected to ask/get that answer from the dealer...gonna see if it's printed on the receipt.

I'm gonna the next oil change myself so that I know type of oil and that the proper quantity was replenished. I've had dealers in the past routinely underfill by up to a quart per oil change. These were all using the pre-calibrated dispensers. They would never learn as I always checked my oil levels before I drove off and ALWAYS had to have them top it off. I've been doing my own oil changes for so long I will have to relearn to not be so trusting since I have 5 oil changes left from the dealer.

I'm also going to have the oil analyzed...wished I had saved some of the original oil...
