Getting ready to change the oil in my truck before a transcontinental road trip. I am not going to change the filter, though, since it only has 1.5k miles on it. My owner's manual says this about my engine. Could my filter (sig) really hold .7 quarts? It seems like it could maybe hold .2 quarts at best. Is there something else at play here besides the volume of the filter cannister? Maybe it is too small a difference to worry about, but I don't want to under or over fill it. I don't really trust the dipstick in the truck. I've read a lot of complaints about the dipstick in other forums, too.
