im not sure probably some where between the 2 fill marks and under the minimum fill mark, word of wisdom don't rely on the low oil light, just check it regularly. why do you ask anyway ?

I made a left turn last Sunday light came on for a second and off. Then engine fryed chk oil not a drop just changed oil 4 months ago would of thought light or engine light would of said hey issue no oil pressure.

Mitsubishi said I had a very small leak in my oil filter never saw any oil on drive way he said it pumped out when I'd drive it never any residue on the rear of my car or anywhere else on my car if oil was blowing out. Every forum I read on my car was why dose my oil light keep coming on even when oil was full well hell u would think if u had no oil light would slap ya in the face.

I guess you must have a faulty oil level sensor then, is your engine totaled then?

Hate to hear that. I make it a habit to check the oil in all my cars at least once a week. Do I really need to do it that often? Probably not but it only takes a couple minutes to check it versus a couple of days to drop a new motor in. Not to mention the money saved in the long run. Drive safe.
