You can just pour oil into the car's compressor or one of the lines while you have the system open.

It does not appear that machine has a recovery function, it will only evacuate and charge.

The oil will stay in the system while you pull a vacuum. The only time that more oil needs to be added is after some has been lost by a severe leak such as a blown hose, replacing a part with a new dry one, or flushing the system with solvent.

yes,
that is what started me on this mad mission
a o-ring let go on my new compressor.

i know the compressor held 6 ounces and the
filter 1 ounce so would i be safe just putting
7 ounces in ? as i dont know if i lost all the oil?
if it has a bit too much is that a big deal
