I have a 2019 ATAS I checked my oil and I'm at the bottom on the stick. Does anyone know how much oil to put in to start with? I don't want to over fill it. I was thinking about a 1/4 of a quart to start or could I go to 1/2?

Thanks

Would it be possible to "add enough oil at-a-time" to elevate the oil level up the dipstick to the first horizontal marking line?

Are saying add oil and keep check the drip stick without the whole run it wait a few minutes and checking it again?

That is what I do.

I am not one of those owners who fill by the textbook based on what filters were replaced (if any), whether or not the engine was overhauled, etc. etc.

I fill to close to estimated capacity, and top up the last quarter quart/liter using the dipstick. Not really a pain for me and never a problem either.
