Where did my oil go?

I poured the oil in the oil tank. I checked it afterwards, but it read that there was barely any oil in it. I poured like 15 quarts in there, when i checked it, it said there was no oil in the tank. I looked under the truck but there was no oil pouring out the bottom. Where is my oil going. I must have poured 25 quarts in the tank in total, but when I look in the oil tank, there is no oil in there. It is like a magik trick, what is going on?????????? Is it going in another xompartment or seeping through some pipe????????????

probably should make sure your putting it in the right hole... There is little to no excuse for 25 quarts to dissapear somewhere in your truck (unless you dumping it in the gas tank or in the transmission fluid)

So immediately after you put the oil in it dissapears? Is that what your saying? You did put it in the engine oil fill cap on the valve cover correct?

so what your saying is you put 25 quarts of engine oil into the power steering resevoir? that doesnt even seem possible, the power steering shouldn't even hold that much it doesnt seem like
