Default antifreeze/coolant question

03 saturn l300

Looked a little low on the orange fluid so I bought Peak Cool antifreeze/coolant with dex cool from Farm and Fleet. Poured some in, about 1 cup worth just to top off the surge tank.
I just realized I'm not sure if it said on the bottle 50/50 , prediluted.

Does anyone know if it is prediluted? In the "ingredients" list it says water.
oy vey. Next time I'll pay closer attention after a 12 hour night shift!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I'm a little confused. So you used only a cup of antifreeze and you no longer have the bottle/receipt? The bottle will say pre diluted on it if it is pre diluted.

Either way, it doesn't matter much you have some leeway on the top end of 50% water to antifreeze to still have freeze protection.

That shouldn't matter but it needs to be dex cool the orange coolant not the green coolant. And you shouldn't top of the surge tank there is a level indicator where it should be at or you risk boiling off where it will force the coolant out of the surge tank.

It doesn't say on the bottle and yes, its orange. Maybe twice a year the surge tank gets really really low so I pour enough to get it where it needs to be

Water will be listed on the diluted one and the full antifreeze. Obviously the full will have a much smaller amount. From what I can see on the bottle one will say full strength concentrate and the prediluted will say 50/50 prediluted just under the PEAK lettering on the front of the bottle.
