he dont mean thats how much is in your rad to tank! say you got some ribena you have to dilute it say 15% Ribena to 85% Water for the Correct Amount i.e 15/85! Just make up your mixture of 40/60 or 50/50 and fill her to the line! but not with ribena lol!

Just follow the instructions on the side of the bottle. Ready mix is fine, you will need more of it though as its not concentrated.
