Default Mobile 1 Anybody else done this?

So I went to Walmart the other day and grabbed a Motorcraft Oil Filter, a gallon jug of Mobile 1 Super 5000, and a quart of same. Thinking I had 5 qts of oil for the needed 4.5 qts oil change. Went home and changed the oil.

I was looking at Oreilly Auto Parts Ad online and noticed they had a sale on 5qt jug of Mobil 1. I thought, hmm why does Mobil 1 have a 5 qt jug. Then it dawned on my... crap! I put 5.5 qts of oil in my engine that called for 4.5 qts.

So when it stops raining here, gotta drain some oil

----------

Also, when did they change to 5 quart jugs instead of the gallon?

In Canada the Mobil 1 jugs come in 4.4L bottles (4.65 qts), but I noticed my truck calls for 4.7L (5 qts).

After checking the stick though the oil level remains within the min / max range so I didn't worry about it.

check your bottle.... at Napa we sell BOTH 1 gallon jugs and 5 qt jugs... just depends on whats on sale.

Its very possible you only put a gallon jug (and a quart) in
