Sorry.
4.73 liters.

Your 5 Liter car won't be able to tell the difference given the sump.
Unless you are burning oil, then that .27 Liters may make a difference.

My old 95 Corolla would only throw the low oil light when the sump was down to one liter and taking a corner.
Time to dump 3 liters in.
Good times.

Pennzoil Ultra Platinum was $19 couple weeks ago at Walmart. I could only get one bottle as it was hoarded tho. I'm hoping to find the same deal in upcoming sales hopefully.

Again I went to a Walmart yesterday in Montreal (Place Viau). Noticed that the Mobil 1 Extended Performance shelf sticker was marked $28 instead of $35. Decided to scan the jug and was surprised that it scanned at $14. Bought two since I was walking home and also didn t want to accumulate too many oil jugs at home.

That's because the light you're describing is not a low oil light but a low oil pressure light, when that light comes on it means parts of your engine may not be receiving the correct oil pressure.

You do what you want. For future readers though the correct thing to do is use the dipstick or electronic oil level gauge to determine when to add oil and not wait for the low oil pressure warning.
Anyways back on topic solid deal for some Synthetic Oil.

Far from being the same. When you're oil pressure drops you are already WAY below spec and lubrication has already suffered. It todays smaller high-revving engines (compared to the old big blocks), it can be quite punishing to the engine by the time the light comes on.

But I agree that having 5L jugs is convenient, but at what cost ? The Costco oil (which is decent quality) is substantially cheaper than most alternatives (assuming your costco carries the grade you need). Before 5L jugs became a thing, I always had 1 extra jug which was for topping up. So for an oil change, I'd use 1 Jug, and then take my top up jug, and add 1 mug full to supplement the 4.73L just to come to close to 5L (which my old honda uses also).

Other high-revving engines are weak.
Beige Corolla don't give a shit.
Oil or low oil.
It's the honey badger of cars.

It was litteraly a clapped out beige Corolla that I bought for 500 bucks, with rust on every panel.
It was burning oil before I got it.
The rust ultimately took the car, not the oil burning.
My 2011 Sonata, I treat nice with synthetic every 8,000 km. Which might be overkill.
Does not burn oil...yet.

Not sure what cars you guys use, but both of mine uses 4L and 3.75L. Must be SUV's or big Trucks
