don't add oil until it gives you a low oil warning. i just got a warning after 10,000 miles, and it told me to add +1 quart, i did, and it is back to normal.

put about half a quart in and then check it.

My car I put 3/4 of a quart in it at about 10k miles.

Don't put in oil until it says "+1" on your dash. Then add 1 quart from your local dealership and it will be back up to full.
