I think I got it all figured out, my only question is... I have 4 gallons of coolant and about 15gallons of distiller water. When I'm done with the complete flushing.. Can I just take extra milk jugs and mix the water and coolant, id imagine it would be a big deal but if I do this how many gallons of the 50/50 will I put back into the truck? And last question. Do I do all the filling up in the degas bottle? Thanks and sorry if it's a dumb question

!5 gallons in my book will not do it as you know cost .62 cents a gallon i used 45 gallons, the system holds 7 gallons if you pull the plug on the drivers side block drain and drop the distilled water in the Rad you will still have 3 1/2 gallon LEFT in the motor and system (holds 7 gallons) that is why you replace it with 3 1/2 gallons of ELC to get the 50/50 mix. Now when you go back with the ELC and ready to replace the t/stat use a long neck funnel and dump it in the hole when almost to the top replace t/stat finish filling through the degasing tank to the add mark this help keep the air out of the system.

Im planning on flushing with hose water first, then distilled water. This video recommends it
With good reasoning.. In my opinion
