[QUOTE="Don Elliott, post: 212869, member: 3855"] I have heard a rumour that if you ask 6 TR3A owners to put the dip-sticks from their engines all side by side for comparison, you will find that size matters. Not "their" dip-sticks, the ones from the car. I mean . . . they might all be different and may all have the low and high scribe lines at different places. That's the rumour I heard. If so, that can have an effect on the number of quarts needed. For a quick conversion, 5 US quarts = 4 Imperial quarts and a liter is very close to a US quart. [/QUOTE]
