i was just sayin the filter itself only holds that much. so if he dodnt drive anywhere and just pulled the filter off to check if he had left the old gasket on he wouldnt loose to much oil.

3k miles to check if it's been double gasketed?

You'd have a blown engine in 2 miles, much less make it 3k.
