This chart shows that OAT and OAT 2 EHA are mixable but it'd be better if you do a few fill N drains with distilled to get as much of the old stuff out before filling with 3 1/2 gal of new concentrate then top off with distilled. Rotella, CAT, Delo, and Texaco are all good.

Always best not to mix coolants unless they are the exact same formula. Like I said do a few fill N drains with distilled then fill with concentrate of your choice.
That chart I posted is getting old but it shows most current brands

So, just fill and drain and not a full flush?

Yeah if they're similar just do 2 or 3 fill N drains with distilled, make sure you get the block plugs open, Fumoto F-108N's are great for behind the starter, the block holds a good bit of coolant. Even with the lower hose and both block plugs you'll still have some in there. That's why I'd do it a few times. Then add 3 1/2 gal of concentrate and top off with distilled. You should be good after that.

flushes are used to get sediment out you just want to reduce the ratio of old to new coolant

The stuff you're using is CAT EC-1 spec so mixing a little won't hurt anything
