For some reason I think the bottles are smaller so check the volume. You may need two. We used to use it once a year because GTR models called for a different concentration than 50/50 depending on what season it is.

I have two jugs of 50/50 so a bottle of concentrate would be good to add in since I'll be diluted with the water in the block.
Drain the block using the block drain plugs on either side of the block.
should drain, use full concentration to get 50/50 or 60/40. Then top off with distilled.
8quarts of 50/50 plus a full bottle of full concentration isn't the right mix.
You don't mention year.
Gen 1:
11 5/8Q capacity
50/50 = 5 3/4 Q
60/40 = 6.9 Q

With your mix mentioned:
8 quarts of 50/50 = 4 quarts
4 quarts full concentration
Total = 8 quarts which is 69.6% which is kind of high.

So flushing out with water and adding right concentration is best bet.

Hi. Thx. Not sure I'm seeing the math. Preview It's a 2015. 65K miles.
Like others I wasn't going to bother with the engine block drain plugs.
Apparently the Nissan concentrate isn't fully concentrated and the mic instrument are only if you want an extra 10° drop in temp protection. So I don't know how I'd figure out proper amount. I was going to use a hygrometer and keep adding in concentrate till was right as I run it.
Is there a way to calculate that starting with a fully flushed system or should I find a blue one compatible?
