What's the fluid volume difference between max and min on 722.6?

What is the difference in fluid volume between the maximum and minimum marks (80C) on the 722.6 transmission fluid level measuring tool? I'm assuming about 0.4 liter...that's what it is on a 722.4...but thought I'd ask.

That is not max and min... It's hot and cold. Trans need exact fluid level, so, cold is max cold, and hot is max hot...

You're misunderstanding me. There's a cold (25C) range and a hot (80C) range on the 722.6 measuring tool. I'm asking what the difference is between the bottom and top of the 80C range.

No… All I've been able to do is guess by trial and error. I'm assuming about 12-13 oz.

I ended up adding about 9 ounces and that seemed about right.

Btw: Lots of fun dropping pan, cleaning, refilling, flushing, refilling.

Now that it is done (using Shell 134) I think I may drain(vacuum out) 3 quarts every 10k miles when I do an oil change and put 3 quarts new fluid in. That way I might be able to extend dropping pan out to 100k or so.
