      I too use Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5W-30 in my 2012 XC60 T6, 2013 XC90 3.2 and a family member's 2015 XC60 T6.

      I forget if there's a newer TJ that changed the amount. Search around to confirm it still is 100mL.

      I'll be posting some interesting research I've been doing on the fluid removal...

      You can just see it poking out in the third and 2nd to last photo (if my orientation is correct).
