If you bought the Rotunda ones that Ford recommends, the strips come with a "read chart". Without the chart, the strips are useless.

Pretty much what he said. The first two are normally the nitrite moly levels. You have to cross reference them on a chart and it will tell you your levels. The last is normally the freeze point.
