a few thoughts...
start the engine, heater max, and squeeze and release (and repeat) the upper radiator hose to draw the fluid...before the engine warms up and overspills...rev it a few times
open the radiator and park on an incline and leave it overnight or while on the incline do like above...
get it as full as possible and drive over bumpy terrain and then open the cap and do one of above...

ROFLMAO

Thats really good man I have to compliment you on that one. Dont take me wrong I am not being an @ss, But there is an easier way than driving down a bumpy road. Just fill your cooling system and break the temp sender loose in the intake screwing it out til its only got a few threads left in the intake. You will notice the sound of air escaping around the threads, Let it bleed the air until you get steady coolant and no air bubbles. The reason this is the best way is because this is the highest point in the cooling system behind the thermostat and all air will trap there in the intake. Do this with the engine stopped.

It doesn't burp itself? Usually a day or two of topping off the overflow between stops takes care of it.

I just drained part of my radiator to add a greater mix of water to antifreeze. Well, when I went to fill it back up, it ended up holding more then I drained out I must have had some giant are pocket or something. Now the car runs 10x cooler. Cant believe it.
