purging air from cooling system

So, this just came up in another thread, but I was hoping to get some more input on this in particular. Anyone else had issues getting air out of the cooling system after a flush? How would you know if all the air was out?

I flushed last week and the fluid level has stayed about the same. Any input or suggestions are appreciated!

If your not overheating you probably got the biggest part of it out. I wouldnt worry unless I started having heating issues.

I did my flush last Saturday....drove it about 20 miles on Sunday and had to top it off with a little less than a 1/2 gallon. Drove 40 miles yesterday and it needed less than a pint. Drove again 40 miles today and it needed nothing. I think it is just a matter of driving it to get it "burped" completely.
