I bought 12 gallons when we did our change (per Dave F). Used almost all of it, between the gen set and engine. The radiator and surge tank hold the rest .

I had a hard time with the funnel I had filling the radiator, so I took some PVC pipe with 90's and 45's and cut to fit to ease pouring the coolant in. Maybe you won't need to do that with the ISL.

What I use to transfer coolant into the radiator is a pump that screws on to the top of the coolant bottle. These are usually sold as oil pumps. Cheap and works great. There are two hoses that come with the kit. One that fits on the pump and goes to the bottom of the container and the other fits on the pump output.
