One thing to be careful of...pets.
If you have a dog or cat, they just love the taste of this stuff.
If you spill it on the ground, and they lap it up, they're in trouble.
It only takes a very small amount to kill them.

As John noted ethylene glycol (anti-freeze) is very sweet smelling to pets. They will run to it and lap it up. It only takes one or two laps to kill by shutting down their kidney's.

Just because it pukes however, it doesn't necessarily mean it's overfull. The same symptom can also indicate it's not full enough.
If you have air bubbles, that can also make it puke, as the water flashes into steam and really expands (know how steam engines work?).
