    Just keep pouring until it comes up on the dipstick! start it up and check again once the filters filled up.

    According to my hand book, it is 6L for for a 2.8 engine, if you also change the oil filter.
    Fiat, Ducato. I usually buy a 5 litre can and a 2L bottle. Leaves me 1L over to top up when ever I need to.

    Mine is a 2002 model. I just looked at my hand book. All it says for my year is 6L for oil change with filter.

    Peter and I (or John as he,s known to you) dont have that problem Paul, we buy in 500 Ltrs at a time and that is normally enough for 1 Fiat:ROFLMAO:
    seriously though please stick to the old fashioned way, DON'T just pour in 6 Lts and if the light says ok then orf you go. they are famous for being inaccurate:Eeek:
    Geo or Peter or John if you like
