Did you get a manual with it?

1.1 quarts is plenty, but I would put in a quart, start it up for a few minutes and check the quantity.

If you don't have a manual with it, then get one. VERY good info.....

The manual says 1.1 litres when changing the oil filter but I find that 1 litre neat is enough for mine but then I am using a stainless steel filter which I clean every oil chainge.
