Better to have too little (but still on the stick) than too much, odd as that may sound.
understandable , i do check it often and usually keep a quart or 2 in the car , but this will be the first time iv ran synthetic , and i dont really know what the benifit is , i just got the oil for free but have heard a difference of opinions on synthetic vs conventional
