I would think so, after all they all use the same housing (020) so they
all have the same internal volume and thus take the same amount of oil. 
I always fill mine by volume, usually fill through the fill hole (w/
bottle and pump) until it runs out (that way I know that it has oil in
it), then fill the rest through the top after installing the fill plug.
