Did you ever try filling the filter before putting it on? It takes less than half a quart even if you let it sit for a few hours and soak up.

WAY too many variables to assume that it would be accurate.

Not busting chops, its just that peace of mind in this case is $2-20 to get the right part and be done with it.
