It should be in your manual. I've got a WRX and it takes 4.7Qt's. It may also be listed on the top of the oil cap.

I usually use a little more than four and a half. I carry whatever is left in the cargo container in the rear in case I need oil.

Please tell me you spilled a lot of the oil. The manual only states that it takes 4.8Qt's to fill. If you put in 6Qt's, you overfilled it.

6 quarts? I dont get it, even with new filter and pan replacement the most I could ever see would be 5 quarts. You had better drain some of the oil out.

Thats strange. Why would my Legacy which is also a 2.5 take a half qt more? The only thing I can think of is I have a DOHC, but would that be worth a half qt?
