Have a Nice Day? Oil question!

I change my oil yesterday.... i put 4.8 quart of oil in my car and now the dip stick is low.

no, 32 oz in 1 qt (You are from a sane country that uses metric I assume?)

The 4.8 is approximate; just add a little more oil.

You don't have to fill it to the top. I shoot for about middle of the dipstick.

You really should fill it. Why would you only go half way?

I would fill it up. If you drive hard and take corners fast you run the risk of not having oil by the pump
