Well, now come to think of it, when I mentioned 9 quarts, really what I should point out is that when I do an oil/filter change, I end up putting about 9 to 9.5 quarts back in...never more than 10 (and that's rare). Obviously, there is still oil in the lines, oil coolers, etc. But my goal is to keep the needle at the top of the red zone...just above the very bottom of the gauge, first mark on the dipstick. When I try to observe the half-way mark, I'll consume oil within 200 miles until I get to my engine's "G-spot" down below! And FWIW, I rarely have smoke on start-up, and no smoke on accel or decel.
