A very common question with the only correct answer being exactly as much as you lost. Course, that is assuming it was correct in the first place.

If you really want to be correct, would replace the accumulator, flush out the rest and add precisely what your manual tells you to. Anything else is a guess.

3 ounces in the crankcase- through the oil drain bolt

-------------------------
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
