Either buy pre mixed or mix your own at 50/50.
Just make sure that it is rated as aluminum safe.

It's 100,000 mile safe. Green is about half that. Or so they say. Another wonderful idea from GM.

Use distilled water if you go the "mix your own" route. Aluminum doesn't like the minerals in regular water very much.

You also might consider this as an alternative. Evans waterless coolant.
