*Note, these are average amounts at sea level. You may need more or less depending on your individual conditions and the remaining residual volume of air. There is no danger in adding too many as this does not affect the food.

Oxygen represents 20% of the total volume of air and the number in cc's above represents the amount of oxygen that would be absorbed.

Conversions: 1cc = 1ml. 1000ml = 1 Liter. 3.78 Liters = 1 gallon.
