Coolant problems WTF

So my ford manual says the 6.o takes about 7gallons of coolant. I drain the radiator and broke the plastic screw thing at the bottom tighten it back up .

When i went to go refill it only took around 4.5 gallons WHY. I mean i know your heater core and hoses will still have coolant in them but i dont think they hold 2 gallons.

CHIPS AND PROPANE ARE FOR BBQs!!!!!

Yes, next time pull the plugs (8mm allan head) in the side of the block towards the rear.
