coolant/icp question

Alright guys, replaced my faulty icp sensor (major pain in my ***) and lost some coolant in the process. So I went to the Ford dealership and got some of their gold **** (because that's what was in there) and started filling it back up, then I realized I might should have mixed it with some distilled water or something? Anybody know if that's right? I didn't fill it all the way back up, so if needed maybe I can just put some distilled water in there til its full. Fyi, this is the first time I have done ANYTHING mechanical wise on a diesel, and really on anything, so I'm just trying to get it right. I apologize if this question is just completely stupid

Just add some water and you will be fine. Running a 60/40 or even a 70/30 mix will be ok!
