I would not....
depending on year, it should still be pretty easy.
1. For newer models we provide an anti-freeze take up tube at the water pump. Uncoil the tube, the the 3 way valve, put the tube in a gallon of antifreeze. Use the pump as you normally would and it will draw antifreeze directly from the gallon container as you operate each fixture.
2. For older models, you can use the Anderson Valve. It works the same way...BUT, you need to leave the lines filled (not drained). If you drain the water lines then there is not enough water in the lines to prime the pump and create suction. Your best bet is to leave the lines full of water. Cut off an old hose for about 6' of line. Put the cut end into the antifreeze jug, connect the other end to the Anderson valve. Turn the valve to "Winterize". Now run the faucets and pump as you normally would. it should draw antifreeze from the container.
