Default Factory Fill is gone

First oil change today. Used 100% Synthetic AMSOIL with a UAPNapa (WIX) filter. Went pretty smoothly however man that factory filter was on tight. I was surprised to find that the factory filter did not have a gasket on it, WTF. Anyway was relieved to find it at the bottom of the drained oil Not sure if it made any difference however it does sound and feel better now.

Synthetics will improve rotating resistance. That's a good fluid change to make!

I was wondering if anyone was going to catch that. It actually takes 6.6 liters which is what I ended up putting in. The one I used initially to fill up the filter before installing it was missing from the first pic I took. After topping it up to the 6.6 liters I took another pic.

I'm curious where the filter gasket went. I guarantee you had one on there somewhere.

My factory installed oil filter left the gasket on the block. I had to take it off. The rust proofing isn't working on my truck.
