I remember reading that the 803 holds a gallon of oil, correct? Just drained mine after a good 12 hour run after a fall windstorm before the leaves fell off the trees. This is the first oil change since auction pickup as the filter and oil were just changed prior to auction and I'm up to 6.5 quarts drained out of this thing!

The TM reads 5.9 qts but doesn't specify with or without oil filter.

I need to drain mine and refill to the proper level. It supposedly arrived empty I think but I can't remember if I opened the drain cock to check it. I put a new filter and a 5qt jug of 15w40 in and it reads a quart over filled.
