I found a funnel that snakes in there just perfectly - hose is permanently connected so there is not much risk of it flopping off and getting coolant all over everything.

Huh! I didn't even think of that. Makes sense. Requires the patience of a monk, I'd think. :-)

There's always the el-cheapo squeeze ball and hose transfer "siphon pump" from Harbor Freight. It works fine for miscellany like this. https://www.harborfreight.com/fluid-...ump-62613.html

I just use my coolant strength tester, suck some up and squirt it into the reservoir.
