! 50%/50% on it. Is that sticker telling me that i should mix radiator fluid and water 50/50 or is it something else? I was told the optimal mix was like 60/40 unless you live somewhere its really cold then its like 70/30.
if necessary i will provide pics.
you can buy it premixed or by it straight and mix it with DISTILLED WATER, YOU CAN BUY A GALLON OF DISTILLED WATER AT THE STORE FOR $1..........make sure you look in the owners manual and get the right coolant........for where you live 50/50 is perfect......
