engines not be filled over the max level on the oil level. a high oil level may result in an increase in the oil consumption rate or the amount of oil mist passing through the engine oil breather,
space is required in the oil tank expansion as oil reaches full operating temperature when switching to another approved oil brand or viscosities become mixed it is necessary to drain & flush the complete oil system.
