    I've had my truck since it rolled off the line, only 3 miles on it.
    It has almost 250,000 miles on it, with regular oil changes.
    Every time, it's taken 6 quarts of oil with each change... Until this last time
    This place claims it only needs 5 1/2 quarts.

    Just for peace of mind, how much does that 1/2 quart matter?

    5.5qts gets the level midway between the marks, I use 6qts and it fills to top mark. Have the trans cooler and use the larger filter.
    I like having more than the minimum amount.

    I've never had a place short me a 1/2 quart before... Annoying. The place has good reviews, but if they're skimping on something simple... What else are they doing?
