Red takes 8.2 quarts
Black takes 8 quarts.
I'm not too worried about the consumption since diesels are allowed to burn oil. I'm in a cold climate these days too which might explain it. i have a red dipstick. didn't know there was a difference. the owners manual says the difference between the the max line and min is a quart. My line is right in the middle so thats why i assume half a quart.
