I would say No, it's not alright. I'd expect the full amount of oil to be put in on a service. You've been short changed. Perhaps this one of the other things Kwik Fit can do. i.e. save money on oil .

On another note. I had the first service done on my Scenic at a Renault main dealer. A day or two later I checked the oil level using athe dipstick and found out it was grossly overfilled. I took it back and had the excess taken out. They claimed to have put the amount in for a different model. I also got a litre of oil out of them for my trouble.
