Coolant

Is there any "BEST" coolant for a standard type radiator when refilling it?

The best you can do is use distilled water when mixing 50/50. The minerals in regular water is what clogs it up with deposits.

Can I use this and just pour it by itself into the radiator?

Just get the 100% coolant that you mix to me coolant is coolant. So any brand will work. And as far as mixing it depending on where you live 50/50 will hold up to -32 and do mix it more than 75% coolant and 25% water. If you go higher than that the coolant will lose its ability to cool the engine down and you will run hotter
