I find it pays to buy the huge containers when ECP have an offer on them. In an ideal world, you'd put your antifreeze in, bleed and all will be well for 5 years but in reality, you may well have to drain it again to say change a pump or carry out work on the engine. Works out a LOT cheaper buying it like that too (at least, when its on offer).

I buy those large ones too, when I have to drain some coolant for work I catch it and put it back in.

When draining antifreeze to change what do people do with 16 litres off the stuff?
