You'd be better off using 7 quarts instead of 8. NEVER overfill an engine with oil.

Why not just use 7.7 quarts?

Agree. Dealer here uses 8 as well. I just changed mine a few days ago and put in 8.

Do they actually use 8 or just charge for 8?

I just round up to 8, it's easier that way.

An extra 4.8 oz or 3.9% cannot possibly cause any issues.
