Hey,

One method of finding this out would be to look at your manual, there might be precise amounts stated. It's definitely the case for engine Oil but for other oils it might not be there, in which case you'll need a service manual (different from your standard user manual, it outlines a lot of troubleshooting, repair steps, etc.). Might ask for it here or find it yourself on the Internet.

Another method would be to go to a few different Oil company websites, Motul, Mobil, etc, and enter your vehicle details - exact year, engine modification and so on - and check out what quantities they're stating.

While this is a faster method, I would double-check with the manual but if 3 different Oil manufacturer websites say the same thing, it just might be true.

Are you changing the lubs on both motors Martin as you have two different ones on your profile ? Just wondering if that would help anyone who can help  to do so with correct data

Very tactful reply there matie. May be wrong on this but do not the gearbox and transfer box share the Oil and do you not fill them till the Oil creeps out the filler/level hole ?

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
