I use the green type.  I don't use the red.  I also strongly suggest distilled water as it minimizes mineral deposits from electrolysis.

I prefer Prestone as it hasn't caused any problems for me and the additives will help.

They make commercial flush but I've heard of some using vinegar - same principal as cleaning a coffee pot.  Ingenious.

If I clean, I may do that.

Never seen that brand before.  Looks good.  You should have a bit left over after mixing. 

My technique is to poor the remaining water into the leftover half gal antifreeze to have top-of 50/50 ready to go (just mark it so you know).
