I have performed two oil changes so far. I have added exactly 13 quarts each time and the level ended up at the top of the range on the dipstick.

My dealer's mechanic said they use 14 quarts, or close to it, because 13 doesn't bring it high enough on the dip stick.
I can't really argue with him, as I can't really read the dip stick. I get a different result with every dip.

edit,
Actually, I did check it after both dealer oil changes, and a few time between changes, it's always been on the very high end of the range

I thought I was the only one that did this. I gave up after checking it about 5 times. Good to go!

You will find that if you let your truck sit overnight you can read the dipstick the first time you check. Keep in mind you only get one chance (you cannot double dip). I realize you are supposed to check it warm so if I check my oil during the day I let it sit for a while before trying. Another suggestion by someone else on the forum was to pull it up slightly, wait for a short time and pull it all the way out to check the dipstick. If I have any complaints about this truck it is the ----DIPSTICK----. I guess if that is my only problem-- I have no problems.

You only get one or two decent checks.
After that, wait until morning.

Yes i've notice the dipsticks are hard to read, not to high jack the thread but how many miles did you guys go before your first oil change?

I changed at 6,000 miles but the dealer wanted me to wait for the information center to tell me to. The old mentality was to change on a new motor at 500 -1,000 miles but they said that is no longer the case. I still change my oil at around 5,000 miles. I usually am getting ready to take a long trip and don't want to leave with 5,000-6,000 miles on the oil. Most a majority of people with these new trucks wait until the information center tells them its time to service oil.

I had the dealer change it at 4700 and then I've changed it at higher amounts each time.
This last change was close to 6,000 and had less oil growth than the previous changes.
(Too bad I forgot to take the sample but I think the fuel percentage would have been low.)

Old Thread Revived

I drained oil & removed filter on my 2016 6.7L at 2,258 miles.
Let it drain 3hrs while I was doin other chores.

Installed drain plug. Filled new Motorcraft filter full of oil.

13qts did NOT read full on Dipstick, so I added 1 more qt totalling 14qts including what I poured into filter BEFORE installing.

The book wasnt right either on my old 7.3 best I remember.

I'd rather dipstick read full reguardless of book.

The book wasnt right on my KTM 950 bike either

First post looks like you guys love this thread. I did my first OC on my 16 at about 2600 miles. I will go by the gauge from now on. I also switched to 5W-40 T6 Rotella full synthetic and installed and Futumo plug (valave). As the manual said 13.1 quarts put me right to the top of the hash marks on the stick.

So, since you are obviously more qualified than most of us, just curious if a little extra is going to cause any real issues?

You're expecting a response from a post from 2012?
