My buddy has one. I think he said it takes a little over 5 quarts to fill up. Not too bad. I highly recommend the Ruby to anyone, those things have amazing pulling power. The are like a small tank.

I wouldnt let 3 or 4 or 5 litres of oil be the deciding factor.... if you want a workhorse machine with low gear, and dont mind trading off the IRS for it, then the Ruby is the best machine on the market...
