Not sure how many ml of oil I used. But you can simply compress the forks and you'll find the top of the installed cartridge is just about 145mm from the top of the compressed upper tube. Measure it with a ruler if you like. Just fill up the fork until the oil leven comes to the top of the cartridge.
