    is there an easy way to do this without transferring it to another bottle? what a pain!

    i have an easier time being precise with "normal" oil bottles, even if it doesn't have a level "window", as you can put your finger on the bottle and note the position when looking inside. redline has such a strange bottle shape, you can't do that so if your car or truck takes X.5 quarts or x.25 quarts, you have to pour and check pour and check with Redline, instead of getting it approximate, checking, and usually being on point such as when i use oils in "normal" bottles.

    No, have to pour it out. Everything except the engine on a Tacoma you fill until it pours out the fill hole so there's really no need to measure it. Same with most gear oil replacements on other vehicles, so there is no need to mark the bottles. I hope you are talking about engine oil and not gear fluid here.
