Default Supercharger oil

I've been researching trying to find the correct supercharger oil. From my research I found the part #: E9sz-19577-A , is this the correct supercharger fluid?

Here goes a Amazon link: Genuine Ford Fluid XL-4 Synthetic Supercharger Fluid - 4 oz. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000NUERYW/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_Y5xMCb535AZXY

I'm at 80k miles right now currently, just making sure I'm doing proper routine maintenance.

The Ford is good and the GM supercharger oil is also acceptable (and cheaper). Jaguar did not manufacture the supercharger, it is an Eaton M112. It uses 2 4oz bottles and has a little left over. It's around 7 oz.

Here's a kit that has the oil and the syringe:

I have bought that kit once for my X100, and used it on my X308 and am about to use it on my X150. I just buy new oil each time. It's a really quick job, and really is a 30k mile item. At 80k, if your unit isn't making any funny noises and this is just good old preventative maintenance, you'll be fine and just start doing it every thirty .

Iíve been reading this forum for four years now, and I think this is the first Iíve seen on this topic. I donít have a //R, but I wonder how many XKR owners donít realize that the SC has a separate oil source?

7.3 ounces to be exact, and $23 seems like an awful lot for what amounts to a half-pint of straight 30 weight synthetic and a $2 syringe.

NO! I did NOT just start another OIL thread!!!

Yes, I know lots of people are 100% OEM no matter what, and that's fine. 100% OEM in nearly every Automatic Transmission fluid up to 1973 was partly Whale Oil........ so..................................
