Steering box capacity

I'm following the advice here and elsewhere and removing the STP from my steering box.
The Penrite Steering Box Lube comes in 500ml bottles.

Would appreciate it if someone could tell me whether a single bottle will fill the steering box or whether it takes more.

Just got done filling my steering box with Penrite. I used Fred Silva's method of turning the wheel lock to lock and filling the box at the left lock point. It took a little over a bottle - approximately 600ml.
FWIW - Fred says there are a lot of Healeys out there with partially-full steering boxes. See: https://youtu.be/4UwsfMPWuGg

Pretty pricey at $26 each from Moss including tax and shipping. I see Amazon has comparable Snapper 7061017 NLGI #00 grease in a quart bottle for $12. 14oz cartridges of John Deere #0 Corn Head Grease are available for $4.
