    From what I have read - I have not measured the change in oil quantity yet - the increase in oil volume is 250 ml. That is when using the stock /7 dipstick and the oil level at the same 'max' location. While this is some extra oil (~ 8 oz), I mainly installed the deeper (BMW) oil pan for the baffle.
