its different for each car, it should tell you how much it holds at the top of the tank, if you still cant figure it out just put half a gallon of each at a time untill its full.

The owners manual lists the capacities for fuel, oil, and coolant.


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

What my uncle does is he gets an empty gallon of milk and makes the 50/50 mixture in there. Then he adds to the radiator from that until it's full. Hope that helps. thumbsup

I mixed mine 60/40 (coolant/water), since by mixing this ratio it brings the boiling temp up about 15 degrees. If you mix it 50/50 the coolant boils at like 254 degrees. I don't know what the dealer did, but when I first bought my car the coolant was so light pink, which had to much water. In the summer time I came to a light and I saw steam coming from under the Hood a little bit, which was from the coolant boiling over through the overflow spout/hose. I changed the coolant, while mixing it 60/40 and never boiled over since.

On the back of the gallon it should give you different choices of ratio mixtures. smile

In a hot climates like Southern California or Nevada. Why not just drain the entire system & put in 100% long life coolant?

Anyone comment?
