    When checking oil level after a change (hot engine, 5 minute after shut down as B5 Blue said), if it's over 1/2 way up the cross hatch, you're good to go.

    Dodge says 6 quarts for the Hellcat. I've done two changes now and six quarts puts me right at the top of the cross hatch on the stick. Looks like 6 to me.

    6 puts it half way in the safe zone, 6.5 to "fill".

    re check level then add the last half after its back up to temp and then sits for 5min

    First oil change yesterday. Watched tech every step. Six quarts brings reading right to top of cross hatch. Opened both drain plugs as per correct procedure. Car was 3/4 quart low when first picked up.

    So 6 quarts is full. 6 1/2 quarts is over full.
    I have never checked the oil in HC since I picked it up in December 10, 2014.
    I took it to my summer home in Destin for a road trip last weekend.
    It now has 800 miles on it. I am ready for a Oil Change.
