4.8 engine oil a little low

Post by graham1 » 01 Dec 2017 10:10

Hi all,

I checked the engine oil this morning in the 4.8. It's been parked off for a couple days now, the oil is on the lower line so I guess I need to top up, how much do you reckon? 250ml? 500ml?
She's done approx 5000kms since the last service, 3000 of these through Botswana.
I've never actually had a vehicle that's needed an oil top up before (and I've owned a landy!)
