    Coolant top up

    Had the dreaded low low coolant symbol this morning, with the cold weather...May be a silly question ask but when using G-12 to top up do I need to add 50% water at the same time, or is it already mixed in?

    Cheers in advance.

    I Mixed the g12 mate with water as it isnt mixed straigh out of bottle.

    I just filled empty bottle 1/2 and 1/2 g12 and that done the job perfect...

    Read the bottle for the mixture %. Should be done correctly esp with the cold weather. You need to mix water with it though.
    ^^ In my opinion

    should be 40-60 % strength so either 40 ml coolant per 100 ml of mixture up to 60ml of coolant per 100ml of mixture. I use a old screen wash bottle fill up to 500ml with coolant then fill to 1 ltr mark with water hey presto 50% mixture.
