    typically 4.5 litres if filter changed... best pour in 4 litres, check dip stick and add more as required.

    Put 4 litres in, run engine at tickover for half a minute or so while checking for leaks, switch off, let the oil settle while you have a cup of tea, then check and top up as necessary.
