This field indicates a stock status. Google accepts four values:
- in stock
- available for order
- out of stock
You can map the availability field using the existing Volusion field - StockStatus. If the value of StockStatus is less than 1 the availability should be set to out of stock and if StockStatus is equal or greater than 1 the availability should be set to in stock.
Below you can see an example of creating these rules and mapping the availability field using DataFeedWatch:

It seems that ProductName and ProductDescription are the best candidates. You should look for phrases like: used, like new, refurbished, renovated etc.
Then you can add condition field and create rules for this field. Below you can see an example of mapping the condition field using DataFeedWatch:
