    The overflow tank shouldn’t be full.

    Is there zero fluid in the overflow? Like @whippersnapper02 said it shouldn’t be full, there should only be about a quarter or less than half in there. If it’s empty then open the radiator cap and see if you can see any or feel any.
    Also it should still be under warranty and if the radiator is actually low on fluid there is something causing it. I would take it to the dealer and have them look at it and see if it needs to be fixed.
    Let us know what you find out.
    PS: the STP Asian would be ok. It’s pink right?

    Radiator fluid is on the logo on the reservoir it is in no danger overheating but I think it needs to be topped up little bit and was wondering if that radiator fluid was suitable for the truck I know in time that it does operate someone truck has 80,000 km on now

    It’s because no one eats the grape.

    Bought Toyota antifreeze.wow $ 25 and change cad that’s nuts .i allso looked at 2018 Trd sport upgrade brand new when I was there . 45,650 cad before tax’s . I just about passed out . Toyota stands for quality but I think they are in serious danger of over pricing.

    That price on coolant sounds about right.

    As for vehicular prices..... they still sell, so toyota can pretty much get away with murder and we will back them.
