I posted a thread on hemi oil capacity becuse my dealer was charging me for 8 quarts of oil. Everybody came back and 7 quarts was the answere ( including FNKY)and that's what the manual said. I took it to another dealer and was charged for 7 quarts. The only dif was the filter p/n 5281090-BA for 7 qts and the 8 qts and filter was(f)5281090. Is there a dif in filter capacity? Thanks in advance.
You was taken by that dealer.
Actually, when I change my oil, it only takes 6.5 quarts to fill it up.
I guess .5 quart of old oil stays in the motor.
I think the 7 quart fill is for a completely "dry" motor.

Also remember, any shop/dealership will charge you the one full quart price for any part of a quart they use. It does not matter where the oil comes from. (Quarts or a big drum).

I take my own Mobile one to the dealer and they said to bring 8qts. I have done this twice and both times they have only used 7. I don't understand why they need 8.
I'd find an other place to change your oil or DITY. I bought 8 qts of Royal Purple and only used 7. That's filling the filter too.

Every time I use 7 quarts I end up slightly over full later. It will seem fine after filling and running the car for a minute or so and rechecking (after a letting the oil settle a little). But inevitably I'll be a little over full if I go check the oil after the car has set for a while.
