    For topups I am still on my original bottle

    For oil and oil filter replacement you need TWO bottles
    As above, the capacity is near enough 8 litres
    Equally, you need to watch this for some dealerships as they charge by the litre!

    Up to the last service I always used to put in about 7.5L of oil, but now I have 7.25L as per manual and the car is smoking a lot less????????
