Most engines in that size range use about .6 to .8 quarts of oil. Most Briggs engines use a dipstick for checking oil level. You can usually put half a quart in safely and then use the dipstick to see how close to "full" you are. Add slowely till you reach the full mark. Honda engines use a different way to fill/check your oil. Open the cover (usually within 2 inches of the bottom of the engine) and make sure the oil is "just about ready to flow out the opening".

One more thing....make sure you are on a level surface when you check/fill the oil. I've seen people try to change oil on a slopped driveway.
