Coolant capacity in an Eclat? And OAT vs Silicate?

Recommended Posts

What's the coolant capacity in an Eclat? The service manual states that an inhibitor should be used in the system and states that 2.4L is recommended, but what proportion of the total that is I'm not sure. Also, is OAT coolant/antifreeze the right stuff to be using? Just want to confirm.

I use the best quality pre-mixed stuff I can see in the nearest petrol station.  

 

Most modern engines are aluminium like the 907, so modern coolant ought to be very suitable, by my understanding.

What's the capacity of the system?  There's straight water in there right now so it needs some antifreeze/coolant/inhibitor in there ASAP.
