I by mistake put extra 1-1/2 can of motor oil in my Subaru "Baja" turbo-2005.

With this much oil over it is not good to drive it,IMO.

Don't drive it at all, you can cause serious foaming issues inside the engine and it will start blowing seals spitting oil out everywhere not to mention the loss of lubrication due to foamed oil.

If you have to drive then keep the RPM's as low as possible, go really slow with light throttle and keep an eye on the oil pressure. I would drain the oil first though.
