Thats 5-15% straight anti-freeze the rest distilled or with the water wetter in it to.....So with 50/50 it would be 10-30% so your mix you listed is about right I guess....

EDIT: But I would still just use a little less...The more you add to the straight distilled the worse it will transfer heat...The anti-freeze is just used as an anti-corrosive and pump lube ....

in regards to the first question, the Primochill and the Fluid XP. when i started out i had the same fears as you did and ended up testing both.. i liked the fluid xp, but it tended to grow algae very quickly without an abnormally high amount of anti-microbe. the primochill stuff i ended up liking better in the long run (think i still have a few botttles..) because i didn't have any algae problems and it gave me slightly better temps
