Said to add 1 qt. Added 1L. Displayed level is 7.7 qts so the 7.8 after a 9 qt oil change seems accurate. Was at 7.1 qts only a few miles ago and 6.7 when it said to add. Has the leaking/consumption picked up again? May need to add another bottle of the Blue Devil rear main sealer.

LiquiMoly flush (1L), rinsed with 4 qts M1 Formula M and a quart or two of regular LiquiMoly. 8.5L LiquiMoly Molygen 5W-40. Only 1440 miles on this change and had to add 2 quarts so hopefully this flush and the Molygen helps. Cabin air filter change.
