Here's a link to the converter I used:
Convert ml to oz - Conversion of Measurement Units

Remember, 8.4oz is plumb full. 4oz is only 1/2 of plumb full, but it is still enough to not harm it if if ran for short periods of time.

Here's a link to the PDF manual. You can read it for your self if you want to.

If you actually squeezed 20 oz on oil in it, that is 2.5 times too much!
Let me just say then, I own one and can't even fit 5ozs. in it....4ozs. is full. And yes, those be fluid ounces, to be clear!

Nothing is out of my realm,
if it doesn't fit, make it fit! Beer is the answer....what was the question?
