Radiator coolant ??

Just bought a bottle of radiator coolant which specifically states "Do NOT add water" is this normal?

Re: Radiator coolant ??

It must be pre-mixed. How many litres did you buy?

Re: Radiator coolant ??

Im not sure how much coolant an XF will take. I know my car takes roughly almost ten litres. You would have to mix it with water, other wise how are you supposed to fill it? lol What does the bottle say? Premixed? Concentration?
