I recently put 4 qts in after an oil change, I believe it was Castrol synthetic, I usually don't check the sight glass until the last quart. I didn't see anything in the sight glass! Thought that was highly unusual as there was no spillage on the floor. Befuddled, I started adding the 5th quart, half way still nothing in the sight glass!?! Can't be! I poured a small amount onto a cloth. Darn near clear oil! It was always there in the sight glass just clear, I didn't pick up on it. Now, I had to partially drain to the top of the sight glass and wasted a 1/2 quart. No harm done, just not observant. I laughed because when I was adding the extra oil, I was thinking I lost count on such a simple count!!! Oh My....
