    use battery top up water its £4 for 5L in halfords with 3L of coolant
    also you will have a few pints left in the Block so the car should take about 5 to 6L tops

    The reason that you should only use distilled water at this point is to avoid mineral deposits which will deteriorate your cooling system over time
