Question Sedona 2.9CRDi Oil Capacity

Hi All

I've just done an oil and filter change on my 2004 Sedona (details above)
According to the manual, the Oil capacity is 7.1 litres, however I have only put 6 litres in and the dipstick is showing full to the maximum.
I have taken the car for a run twice and done about 10 miles, by which time I would expect the oil to have got in to every nook & cranny and the dipstick is still showing full, in fact if anything slightly over the 'F' mark
Does anyone know if the manual is wrong? is the real capacity nearer 6 litres?

Thanks

Hi
My 2004 Sedona 2.9CRDi took 6.5 litres last time. Just checked my owners manual and guess what, it says 8 litres. Mind mine was just over F when it settled so the manuals must be up the creek.

Regards John.
