    Hi Mate just fill it to the maximum line the rest of the chamber is to allow foe expansion.I dont think it will have an adverse effect if its only a bit over. Hope this helps. Cheers

    as in level or strength? You need a cetain volume of air for expansion or you will over pressurise the system which could cause something to pop.

    You can affect the heat transfer to the engine by over concentrating it, a few & is neither here nor there, but i wouldn't go 100% AF as the engine/water pump etc isn't designed to run like it.

    hi, you should never put more than 50% antifreeze in a cooling system and in this country, ENGLAND, 40% antifreeze to 60% water is ample
