My truck holds right at 5 and a quarter .. The filter you use makes a difference I work a tire store and change a lot of oil I've worked on trucks like mine with different filters and it makes a difference

I'm just gonna keep using the 5 quart jug & the OEM "D1" filter. At least, I don't have to worry about buying an extra quart & I only have 1 jug for recycling.

The best way that I have found to check the oil on the 2.7 is remove the dipstick for 5 to 10 minutes. This gives the oil in the dipstick tube a chance to drain out. Then insert the dipstick once then remove and read.

Sounds like a plan. Thanks.
