1/2 gal because that is how much volume is in your loop.

Just use distilled water and anit-corrosive anti-freeze like everyone else.

Ahhh... if you mix non-conductive liquid with conductive liquid... it all becomes conductive.

I would just sell the Fluid XP and use cheap water+additive. It performs better and cost only $1-4 a gallon. However, you may want to stick with Fluid XP if you intend to spill anymore....
