What antifreeze if any ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Chaps.


Ive read that Glycol eats the Hylomar sealer from the bottom of the liners.


Anyone used alternative antifreeze to glycol based usual products.


Thinking of using Evans waterless or just distilled water ?

You will need to use something. I having been using Evans for the last 2 years. In my mind if its good enough for Jay Lenno its good enough for me.

Pretty sure my V8 is rockin' Glycol since 1996 and it still has the original engine...I'd say it's ok. Lots of myths out there about antifreeze products. Don't think the cars are that sensitive.
