      Bentley says the 1.8T takes 4.6 quarts of oil with a filter change.

      I think the manual says 4.5. For my first oil change I brought in six quarts of synthetic (came in a box of six) and got 1 and a half quarts back. Last time I brought in five bottles and got none back from the same place, but the oil level is just at the full line...

      My AWP 1.8T took 4.5 qt. Dealer charged me for 5... I've got the leftover 0.5 qt sitting on my desk right now

      There's always money in the banana stand.

      A little over 4.5 quarters...

      These figures seem so low to me... my Beretta takes @ 6.25 with a filter, my moms Lexus takes 7 and my dads Mercedes 8..... one would think that if VW designs the cars to run on the autobahn for long distances at high speeds they would give it a lot of oil and a big oil cooler.

      4.8

      if they use more theyve overfilled, always check ur oil after the dealer fills it. ALWAYS
