Antifreeze help!!

Ok so I just replaced my water pump and was refilling everything when i ran out of normal ethanol glycol coolant 50/50 and my buddy said he had some coolant in his truck by this time it was dark. I only need about 3/4 of a gallon to refill my system and when I was done I looked at the antifreeze and noticed it was orange and did some research saw that you ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO MIX. Am I going to have to drain my whole system for my 3/4 of a gallon of DEXOL aka ORANGE ANTIFREEZE added to Green ANTIFREEZE I added or should i Be Fine Not going to drive till I get a good answer please HELP!!

If it doesn't say compatible with all antifreeze then drain it. No point in taking a chance IMO

DEXOL is OAT Based (Organic Acid Technology) this is the only difference
and Regualar 50/50 is Universal/Global Coolant
Both are Ethylene Glycol
