My 1997 Honda Manual say 140ml, as well as this capture from a 1994 manual.
I used ATF (MerconV) for mine, on suggestions from others on the forums. It seems to do well.

They made it for all of the junk food addicts putting on weight!

Like the ones that drive 200 metres to get some doughnuts and ice cream, and wonder why they are putting on weight! :roll:

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.
