G’day mat. Just make sure that you have enough liquid in the boiler to cover the element and then allow some extra for the run. I used about 14l for my boiler (50/50 mix) and that worked fine for me. Put some water in the boiler to the depth that you need to cover the element and then run it out into a couple of buckets and measure what you have.
