Speaking of changing the oil...

How many quarts do you all typically use when refilling?

I just changed the oil for the first time on my 2002 XRL (bought it a week ago). Some online research recommended 2 quarts. I put in 2 quarts, cranked/warmed it up to let the oil circulate, checked the dipstick... It showed it being really low. Is 2 quarts not the recommended amount?

Also... I used Honda GN4 10w-40 oil. I figured this first time I'd use the recommended oil from Honda... What do you all use? What's cheaper but better performing?

Thanks!
