Oil loss when pulling a vacuum?

Sorry if this question has been asked a thousand times before. :)

When pulling a vacuum, how much oil (if any) is normally lost/sucked out of the system?

Essentially none. Even under those vacuum conditions, refrigeration oil will not boil at ambient temperatures.
