Well I certainly wouldn't change that much oil every 3000, that's for sure. 5000 minimum, at least 5000 miles between changes, or once a year.

The amount should be 8.5, that'll put you in the middle of the normal range, right where MB wants it. You can probably get another quart in there and it'll be at the "Max", but MB doesn't WANT the oil at the MAX line, they want it about in the middle of the operating range.
