I have two 2.5 ton hydraulic jacks and neither will work. Forgive my ignorance but how do I put hydraulic oil into them?

There should be a small screw if the side of the piston to fill it. It's a small hole so filling will be slow.

Links are not allowed here and that one was broken anyway.

Regular hydraulic oil is what you are looking for. Jack oil is the same thing.

Soquilii : You said they don't work? Either bottle type or floor types if leaking out oil there's a problem you don't want with anything I've had and own. If you just can't make TWO work perhaps are a type to use handle to tighten a screw will work and loosen to lower? Both with same issue suggests they are not leaking it the way you need to use them?
I carry about that capacity in trunks so no vehicle's jacks needed to fuss with both you tighten a screw and leave it loose when done fit in a clean case not to mess the vehicle up or move around. Just I don't know exactly what you have and can't. Look at handle for a slot if smaller, cheaper types also more compact,
