using conversion factor and customize report stock balance to show second UOM.
or create each bottle container as a separate Item code.
Item1 : Engine Oil Lubrex 4l, UOM = B4, qty =10 B4, means you have 10 bottle of 4l at onhand, 40 l (using conversion factor)
Item2 : Engine Oil Lubrex 3l, UOM = B3, qty =6 B3, means you have 6 bottle of 3l at onhand, 18 l (using conversion factor)
Item3 : Engine Oil Lubrex 1l, UOM = B1, qty =4 B1, means you have 7 bottle of 1l at onhand, 4 l (using conversion factor)

a bottle cannot be opened and used partially? used as hole I guess?

does this make sens?
