Did you do the oil change or was it a garage/dealer. If the latter did they actually bother to fill it up properly in the first place?I checked the dipstick today and burst out laughing before having it topped off. Only like 2500 miles since the last oil change and it was almost out.
Under-filling cars as much as possible to save money on oil over thousands of services a year is exactly the sort of penny pinching bullshit I expect to see...
I think I've had to top off the Acclaim's oil twice in the last 15,000 miles or so. The Dolly used to be able to burn so much that 60 miles on the motorway at 65-75mph would bring the oil from the maximum mark to the minimum mark. If you stuck to no more than 50mph you could get 120 miles out of it at a push
