I run a little larger oil filter, so the engine holds ~5 quarts. Normally, it would hold just under 5 quarts.
I run 10w40, 10w30, or 5w30 in all my zuk engines (usually one of the 30 weights though). Changing it and the filter out regularly, is just as important as running the correct weight of oil (I change both every 3K miles).
