And just an FYI, it will likely be the worse smelling fluid you have ever smelled. Make sure to put it in something that can be sealed up. Also, make sure you don't spill any, your garage will smell for days. I used the head of a squirt bottle, stuck the hose of it in the supercharger, and sprayed it into a can.
