Filling antifreeze for the first time

My car needs more antifreeze, so i went and picked some up and on the directions it has two sets. One says...

For Vehicles with Expansion Tank

and the other set says...

For Vehicles with Recovery Bottle and Radiator Pressure Cap.

So...which set of instructions do i use?

Recovery bottle.

Oh yeah, be sure to use the right kind of antifreeze (best to get it from a Toyota dealer) - the pink stuff.

I'd also question why you need more. Is it leaking?

You just fill the little clear plastic reservoir on the side of the radiator up to the Max line.

You should mix half distilled/drinking water and half coolant/antifreeze.
