    The only way to ensure a true 50/50 mix in the cooling system is to flush the system through with water beforehand, then find out how much the system holds. Say that the cooling capacity is 7 litres; pour 3½ litres of antifreeze in, then top up with water. You'll never drain the entire contents of the cooling system (unless you pick up the car and shake it upsidedown) hence there will always be some remaining in the system after draining. If you add neat antifreeze first then top up with water, you'll know the system will have a 50/50 mix.
