Use pre-mixed 50/50 (50% coolant / 50% water) when you add coolant. Using 50/50 eliminates the guesswork.

In general 50% is good unless you are in very cold conditions. What temperature range do you operate your car in? Lower percentages of coolant will actually cool better in hot climates as water is a better coolant than anti-freeze. I would add Redline water wetter to increase cooling efficiency.

Your owners manual will tell you the total capacity of the cooling system. Put in 50% of that in anti-freeze and the rest in clean water or like Bob says buy the 50-50 mix.

Are you asking how much to put in the radiator? Fill it up to full/capacity, what vehicle are you working on?

In the USA in all areas a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and water (distilled water (de-ionized water) preferred) is used.
