Gearbox Oil

I have a Fiat Punto Evo Sporting 2011, (1.4 Turbo Multiair), in the owners manual, it says the gearbox fluid takes 1.7 KG (yes it's in KG) of fluid.

Does anyone know how much it takes in LITRES?

The fluid is Tutela technyx 75w-85 - I have 2L, will that be enough?

Seems awfully silly they gave it kG rather than a volumetric measurement such as Litres!

Thanks

Re: Gearbox Oil

1,7 KG / 0,865 (Density of Tutela Technyx from it's TDS) = 1,965 L
A little bit of oil remains inside even after draining so it might take a little less than that. Once it starts dripping out of the fill hole when the car is level you'll know it's full. But I know a lot of people who will put that whole 2 L in and that's ok too(actually even better if you have gearbox noises etc.).
Thanks KungFooPanda thanked for this post

Re: Gearbox Oil

Indeed, some overfill their gearbox purposely.
