4.8litres from dry, you'll use slightly less.

10w40 should be fine.

Am I right in thinking that comes in 4 litre bottles ? if so its not enough I'm afraid. As said above you have a little left over from 5 litres.
Don't forget to fill your oil filter before you screw it on.

If you put 4 litres in, its just below the low mark on the dipstick.

ok to drive a few miles to buy a litre.
