    Is there an estimated hydraulic oil capacity when changing the hydro oil on a Super Z? I am going to use Amsoil 20W-50 and don't want to buy too many bottles at $10.00 a quart. The manual says how close to fill to the fill spout but does this translate out to a 3,4,5, or 6 quarts appproximation?

    The reservoir hold 5 quarts, I would buy 7 quarts, the filter holds about a half quart or a bit more and then you have whats in the lines.
    You will likely use 6 or 7 quarts depending on how much old oil you get out of the system.
