I can write a book about procedure and pilots. I don't want to get too off topic but, as pilots we're required to learn about details about aircraft systems and their operation. Procedure is nice, but we're trained to have a brain and think. The reason I reccomend short filling is to verify that the only method of checking oil quantity is working properly. If it's not and it tells you it's full at 5qts, that's a problem. I don't know what the minimum safe oil quantity is, but I do know that running an engine low on oil can blow it up. I would highly reccomend checking out that sensor. I don't even know how it works.
