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

Sorry to hash an older thread but I had the same issue. I changed my 2014 Accord sport with the I4 at 3318 with 60% on the MM and 6 months in time. My driving is 65% city and 35% highway. I did a lot of short trips as well. I did my oil change myself and it was lifted in the front only by jack stands. I changed the oil when it was hot, changed the filter, replaced the crush gasket, ran it and checked for leaks, lowered it and let it sit. It was at the halfway mark when it was on the ground sitting for a few. So I added a quarter quart and I was 3/4 to the top line. The next morning I checked it and I was a quarter quart below the top hole. Checked it again the following morning and same thing. I had driven it about 20 miles and when I got home after work I added the last quarter of a quart which brought my total to 5 qts. 5 quarts is totally possible if the car is in the air and the engine is hot since oil flows faster when it's hot. I also used a Fram Ultra 7317 oil filter which is the same size as the one I replaced.
