I'm thinking that g was meant to be a q and someone labeled that the engine takes 8 quarts of oil and not 5. I'm not sure what the 1/2 is all about.

And actually 8 quarts is overfull but that's still my guess since it's next to the oil fill cap. I don't think a junkyard would write there.

Or is it a puzzle saying 1/2 of 8g + 5 ? LOL

Yup, 8 1/2 qts. Which is a qt too much.

Do you do your own oil/filter changes or take it to a local "Speedy Engine Destruction Oil, Lube, and Filter Shop" ?

I'd be pissed if you painted that on my engine. ESPECIALLY since it was wrong.
