How many liters of material is ideal for a 5L BF?

I don’t want to do small runs below 1L in my 5L BF. How much is typical to load a 5L BF for optimal results? I have a 5L mantle, would I be able to use a 2L BF if I use sand or rocks to fill in the Empty space in the mantle?

Use aluminum foil, put the rbf all the way into the mantle and cover with wadded foil. Keep in mind it’s gonna run a little differently.
