1 gallon to a jug. Not 5 quarts.

4 quarts to a gallon so 13 quarts = 3 gallons (3*4 = 12) + 1 quart - but buy 2 quarts in case you need to add some oil between changes.

Quick question...for those of you changing your own oil what are you draining that oil into. My guess is those black plastic sealable Walmart oil pans won't handle the volume of hot oil coming out of this engine.

Thank you!

I ended up buying 2 of those 3-packs on Amazon.

I bought a 16 quart sealed drain pan from Wal-Mart, so it all fits, then take it to their automotive and tire shop for return. Here in California, the law states if you sell it, you have to accept the old stuff for recycling.

My Wal-Mart pan is 15 quarts.

Once I have my Fumoto drain valve in place I won't use the pan again. I'll drain directly to jugs. I hit up the Wal-Mart oil change manager for empty jugs before I do the change.

I used a 5 gallon bucket on my first oil change, then refilled the jugs with the old oil using a funnel. Next oil change will be with the Fumoto valve installed during first oil change, intend to drain directly back into used 1 gallon jugs saved from last oil change.

I do pretty much the same thing - I have a "bucket" that is made specifically for catching drained oil, it's got a spout on it - then pour it back into the jugs the new oil came in and take those to the recycling center where they have a large tank for used oil.
