Default Amount of oil in a BRP MP62 6 Rib Hotside Supercharger?

I want to do an oil change on my SC.

How much oil should I put in it?

Moss recommends 100-110ml (3.7 oz) in their kits, take it fwiw. It's not so much the amount, but that the oil level substantially covers the teeth on at least one gear, but never coming closer than 3/4" to the center of the lower rotor where it could seep out through the seals. Because the MP62 chamber is oval, it means the amount may differ by SC orientation. I know the BRP kits sits a little crooked, so that may differ from Moss's orientation. Probably not really a big difference, but that's the theory behind it.

Thanks @runninOnEmpty. I'm going to buy a 8oz bottle which will do two changes at 4oz (112ml) per change.
Just like your name I think I'm running on empty atm.

Just changed the oil.
I only got 60ml out and it looked very dirty.
I've put 110ml in and still got lots left for another change.
