Sorry, not my intent. I don't care about level, I was thinking of total oil in the system. the metro only holds 3.5qt, and I feel a lot better knowing that if I'm a qt low there is still 3 in the system instead of only 2.5. A qt low is a much smaller percentage of 4 than 3.5. Its not margin, and I know that the extra 1/2 qt is in the filter not in the pan.
