I have two 2008 3500swith the 3.0, and they take 13 quarts. I only use Mobil1 ESP-M oil!

Hi bds325is,
I'll bet that if you look closer (or there was a typo in the book) you will find that it says 3.21 GALLONS of oil.
3.21 x 4 (Quarts in a gallon)= 12.84 QUARTS
This is very near the 13 quarts everyone uses for an oil change on an NCV3 3.0 Liter CRD OM 642 V6.
Hope this helps,
Roger

12.L just happens to equal 13.21 qt. Looks like they just left off the "1".
