Kirkland and Supertech (both made by Warren) imo is superior to most of the big boys...especially if you consider the cost comparison.

definitely. i can change my oil/filter for less then 30 bucks. seeing how dealers charge up to 80 it’s a huge savings.

Makes me think that scotsum's dipstick is not seating properly when he is measuring.

Or, quite possible that some dipsticks are manufactured without the intended accuracy.

And as already pointed out, MAX doesn't necessarily mean "fill to here". Midway between MIN and MAX is fine if you don't burn or leak oil.
Overfilling can present its own problems.

This is my calculation:
22 civics + scotsum's civic = 23 civics
23 civics * 5L = 115L of oil required
If each owner buys a jug of 4.79L of oil == 23 * 4.79L = 110.17L of oil
So they are missing 115L - 110.17L = 4.83 of oil
Damn I guess you are right, someone is gonna miss .04L of oil.
Wait the jugs come in packs of 2.... F this deal its too complicated LOL

That's about 1/5th the distance from "full" and "add" on the dipstick and for 98% of cars out there this is of no concern whatsoever. (Of course if a car burns/consumes oil, I can see you might want to have it at full so as to reduce the frequency of having to add oil as it consumes it.)

But really, worry about something trivial like this when you're driving a Ferrari, not a Civic.
My Ferrari takes 10L of oil. I doubt 200ml would make a difference on that car either ;)

Good lord, your car isn't going to explode with a little bit too much, or a little bit too little oil. Ever wonder why your dipstick has a high and low level?

Any idea, how long it is before the oil filters go bad? I mean safe storage time for the filters. I am asking this because I have seen some stuff starts crumbling/cracking if stored for a long time.

Nothing is going to happen to your car's engine if you put a bit less.

I drop mine off at the local fire/police station. They have a hazardous waste shed there for chemicals and oils. No fees.

Canadian tire takes personal amounts of oil for recycling (just drop it off at the grease monkey bays). Or if you want to drive to Airdrie they have a recycling depot where you can dump as much as you want.
