4 gallons of concentrate. The problem with this approach is that they will just fill with tap water thereby introducing minerals like iron that you just flushed out. This significantly undermines the life cycle of the ELC but it does get rid of the silicates.

If they get it Completely Dry First ??? , you should have a capacity of 28qts +- a hair , so whatever is left after you take x-amount of ELC

Is the dealership using a machine? That'll make a big difference on how much you need and if you want the concentrate or the 50/50.
