Damon, The Bentley manual, Haynes manual and the owner's manuals call for a 50/50 mix on the water and antifreeze. If you are really smart, you will use distilled water for the mix, especially if you have hard tap water in your area. Distilled water has no minerals and is less likely to cause corrosion problems with the aluminum parts of your engine, as well as cause mineral buildup in the cooling system. Using a straight antifreeze mix does not help things. Check out Motor Trends' Oct. 1998 Car Care section. It goes into pretty good detail.
