SAVE that old gasket! You are likely going to have to take some action in court to get compensated for the ruined engine! That old gasket material left in place when they removed the old filter caused your oil to leak out. It's also evidence you're going to need. In the meantime quit driving the damn thing, especially as you know there is no oil in it. Don't let them buffalo you into accepting some token compensation, like additional oil changes, none of that is going to replace an engine.
