Default DF 200 Oil Change

The Owners Manual says the oil capacity for this engine is 8.5 quarts.
I just drained the oil and put 7.75 quarts in .
The dipstick is showing very slightly above the full level. Is this ok/normal ?
The owners manual says the level should be between the low and high level.
Any feedback would be appreciated.

I always put 8 qrts in, that gets you right between the high and low mark if fully drained out. You should be fine though just above. I would check it after running a couple times

I knew you had said this somewhere before!

My 2018 DF200AP's show 1/4"-1/2" above full with 8.5 quarts...it has never rose or varied at all (I'm at ~40 hrs. right now)

If I dump 2 gallons in mine, they are over full. Mine always take 7.x quarts and the "x" is under 5.
