So today I did an oil change on my wife’s Lexus NX300. I had bulk oil and use a quart measuring cup from Home Depot to measure out 5 quarts. Well it turns out it was low on the dip stick, about 3/4 of a quart. So I grabbed a brand new oil quart I had for my boat and measured it in the quart container from HD. Turns out that the oil quart had more oil than a quart as measured by the measuring cup. The next test I did was, I filled up another 5 quart jug I had which has the quart measurements on the side. It marks up to 4.5, Penzoil jug. I measured out 5 quarts with the measuring cup and only got to 4.5 quarts on the jug. So who’s right, my HD quart measuring cup of the oil quart and the 5 quart jug?
