Really? The 6.0L in the G8 takes 9 qts. I would have thought it would be the same or a little more. Cheaper oil changes. LOL

Technically 8.6 so you'll have to buy 9 quarts.

Here's a previous thread about it.

Since when do Peterbuilts run on gasoline? I knew someone would make a diesel reference so I added the "for a gasoline engine".
