    I,l stick with sticking oil in every few 100 miles rather than having to stick it in every time I stop at a garage lol!

    Full drain and new filters on my 12 450 exc last night and took little over 1.5l to get to midway on the level glass, far above the 1.2 stated in the manual

    Most workshop manuals state the minimum level to run not the max.
