Well then ask them how it makes sense with the 10k oil change that's recommended in the manual.

If the car takes 4.75qt, you lose 1qt for every 1,000 miles driven, and the oil should be changed every 10k miles...then they expect you to be at negative 5.25qt when doing an oil change?

Or do they expect us to drop a bit more fresh oil in every month or two?
