I am replacing the compressor+condenser+hose(the line connecting them)
I am trying to figure how much oil i need and how to add it to the system.

The honda manual for the 3rd Generation CRV i have says

Add the recommended refrigerant oil in the amount listed if you replace any of the following parts.
A/C condenser(including Dryer
Desiccant) ................ 50 mL (12/3 fl·oz)
Evaporator ............... 50 mL (1 2/3 fl·oz)
Line or hose ............. 10 mL (1/3 fl·oz)
Receiver/Dryer
Desiccant ................. 10 mL (1/3 fl·oz)
Leakage repair ......... 25 mL (5/6 fl·oz)
A/C compressor ....... Since the oil separator is equipped inside the compressor for this vehicle, oil drainage is unnecessary at the time of compressor replacement.
But the instructions for the Denso compressor i got says to remove the oil from the old compressor and compare that amount to the new compressor and remove the excess oil from the new compressor.
Also i don't understand what the honda manual means "Since the oil separator..."
Also have no idea how the honda manual knows to add "Leakage repair ......... 25 mL"... How do they know how much oil leaked out?

Not sure if i go based on the denso manual or the honda manual for this?

Any suggestions how much oil to add? the denso compressor comes with oil inside based on the instructions.
