I have Opel Astra 1997 model. Should I mix coolent with water or use only coolent? If, so, the propotion of coolent : water

You should always use a coolant-water mix. Not only does it give you more protection fron freezing temps but it also gives you more protection from heat. Coolant added to water raises the boiling point.
Normally, cars and trucks use a 50-50 mix of water and coolant which is fine for most situations.Any pre-mix coolant is this ratio. Pre-mix does cost a little more but also saves you the hassle of doing your own mixing. You do have to watch if you are doing your own mixing because coolant is toxic. It's sweet smell will attract pets to drink and it can kill them. It does take more than a drop or two but it can so if you spill wipe it up.
Pure coolant jugs will have a label on the back that gives you a ratio of water to coolant based on temperatures. Read across to find an average low or high temperature in your area and read down to see what the recommended coolant to water mix is.
You should also pay attention to type. Coolant comes in 2 colors, green and red(or a version of it). Green is for cast iron engines and red is for engines with aluminum. According to those who know the green stuff will corrode aluminum and therefore the red is designed to be aluminum friendly. Using the wrong coolant could void warranty.
Hope this helps.

1993 Toyota Celica Anti-freeze

A 50/50 mix will get you enough protection for all but probably the most extreme climates. You can go into just about any place that sells anti-freeze and get it already pre-mixed 50/50. Its actually better to do it that way because its precisely mixed and used pure water for the mix rather than tap water.
