The windex bottle method suggested is the one i use. Just stick it in there and squeeze till all the oils out. Ive never used engine oil in my supercharger, but alot of people have with zero failures i've seen. I still use the gm supercharger oil. Its 12 bucks a bottle at my dealer and you'll need 2 bottles. Pricier than engine oil, but for something that you change less often than your trans fluid it'* not all that bad. This coming from the guy that changes his trans/sc fluid once a year lol.

An fyi the sc snout is aluminum so make sure you don't cross thread the plug when you put it back in.
