In my ambient water cooled 1.2 TBird I am running 80% distilled water, 15% antifreeze, 5% water wetter. I settled on this after trying many differant mixtures, it seems to give a very good balance of cooling and corosion resistance.

In the system bellow in my sig it is 50/50 distilled water/antifreeze with a touch of water wetter. Don't use this much antifreeze unless you need it to keep from freezing because water cools better then antifreeze.
