I usually do all the service myself, but this time I was in the area where I bought the car, and where my brother is a Honda tech at the dealership. Since I had a coupon for a "free first service" I decided to bring it in and let my brother do the service (while I watched ). I paid close attention to how much oil he added for the refill, and he put in the recommended amount; 4.4 quarts of 0W20 and (of course) a Honda filter. Since the vehicle was on a lift (level) when the crankcase was drained, I figured that 4.4 quarts should bring it right up to the full mark on the dipstick. I had checked the oil level several times since the car was new, and it was always just over the full mark. When I got back home I let the car sit overnight and then checked the oil level. It is at the same level as it was when the car was new; about 1/8" over the full mark. Next time I change the oil I will be doing it myself, with the front of the car elevated on ramps, so maybe it will take more than 4.4 quarts to refill it. But not this time.
exact thing I dealt with when I did my OC this week for 10 bucks only. The only good thing was I got to bring my 5 qt jug of mc 5w20 and Bosch Distance plug oil filter (.29 micron, 11 bucks and change at WM). Exact thing even down to checking it first in the morning before turning on the car only to see it above the top hash mark. I am hoping some of the vtec induced 1/4 quart burn off will bring it back down to right to the top has mark or I won't need to add oil due to burn off but I will be checking it towards the latter part of the ~ 5000 OCI.

I just replaced the summer air in my tires, with fresher fall air too
