Have to replace my leaky radiator because I have put it off too long. Might be a stupid question, but does anyone know how much anti-freeze I need to get to refill the new one after I get it in?

Thanks guys

Go buy two gallons of anti-freeze and two gallons of DISTILLED water. Swap your old rad for the new one, dump a full gallon of full anti-freeze in the new rad and then start it up, dump a gallon of distilled water in next. Divide the other gallon of anti-freeze equally in the two antifreeze jugs then dump the other gallon of the DISTILLED water into the two half filled containers making two 50/50 mix jugs. Top it off as needed.
