    dammit radiator cap left half off !

    On my Neon, this morning Ijust realised today after parking, seeing some small wiffs of smoke, well moisture, rising from the bonnet, and checking that the rad cap was only on the first click and not all the way down.
    I checked the radiator the other day (about 2 days) and must have forgotton to fully tighten, gets to operating temp and heat was coming out (as of this morning before I parked)

    I was late so culdnt check the levels.

    so Lunch time I checked

    so I think the expansion tank is empty, as best I can see, its cloudy.

    I can see water when I pull the rad cap, I can put my finger in and touch it, I would say, my index finget down to my middle knucle,
    say 2 inches before I touch water.

    When I squeeze the top pipe no water comes through
    am I ok to drive home do you think? or should I get to a gas station (about 5 minute drive)

    here in Canada its -2 going down to -11 overnight, so dont wanna risk anything as I cant do a flush/fill when I get home.

    and I'm a 30-40 km drive home, I have a gallon of the 50/50 rad fill stuff AT HOME <GRRRR>, can't remember the make, the one for HOAT ((Zerex G) can I just top up with anything, wanna really fill up with the Zerex, and dont wanna buy another gallon of dis stuff Click here to enlarge

    tanks

    and also why did It not boil over like yesterday?
