    if I were you I'd start at half a litre below the required 5.0lt. start with 4.5lt. start the engine and let idle for 5 seconds. then switch it off. Let it stand for 3 minutes and then remove dipstick and re dip to see level. Be aware that between min and max on the stick is 1.0lt. Just keep topping up till required level.

    you may find you use exactly 5.0lt but you may find you need more!!!

    you may want to buy 2 tubs of oil. think halfords usually do a 2 tub of oil special offer?
