Hi Folks,

I have a question about oil additives.

If my engine calls for 5 quarts of oil and I want to use 8 ounces of engine additive, do I make the total volume 5 quarts 8 ounces or should the total volume be 5 quarts with the additive?

What say the experts? Thanks in advance...

Total 5 qts. with the additive. Although being 8 ounces over in a 5 qt. sump isn't going to hurt anything.

I'm with dermapaint. I'd just add the 8 ounces over and above the 5 quarts.

Thanks for the feedback.

I will add the additive on top of the 5 quarts for now. When I do my next oil change, I'll include the additive in the total volume. Thanks again!

+1. 8 ounces over really won't matter.

If you were a whole quart or two over, it might cause some mischief.
