    Believe it or not if you're on city sewage most municipalities allow for dumping it into drains as most modern treatment facilities can handle it. Call your city and find out.

    Also, what is a good coolant that I should put back into the Scoob? I'd prefer it being something you don't have to mix.

    No on the any green coolant OK. I would run OEM plus their conditioner.

    Is there something else I can use in the meantime until I get a chance to hit up Subaru?

    "any old green coolant" is definitely NOT what you should be using. Cooling System FAQ: Read if you want coolant information! - NASIOC

    And the OP, if you haven't figured this out yet: Call your local waste management authority to learn how to properly dispose of used antifreeze in your area.

    Who the hell would put "any old green coolant in their car?"

    On the same note, OEM and Peak, along with a few others is all the same. If warranty is what you try to save, then why mod your car at all ?

    What radiator did you get ??

    I never understood the thought process of paying $10 for a gallon of antifreeze, or paying 10$ for .5gal antifreeze, mixed with .5gal water..

    And using no-name-branded antifreeze: is it really any different than Prestone, or other name-branded antifreezes? I think not. I'm not scared of using store-branded coolant, and never have been. If you maintain your coolant system like you're supposed to, and flush it accordingly, I've seen no ill effects of using it, personally.
