HOAT only, mixed 50/50 with distilled water. Like they say----pay now or pay later.

1st off water is the weak point of any antifreeze...Thw differences in most anti freeze is the anti corrosion additives because of the differences in metals between the block,rad,t stat and water pump..If im correct there is a type of additive to stop seals from swelling and a type of lube for all the rubber points as well....
There are pre mixed coolants on the market and if you insist on mixing with water use distilled..

•Low-silicate, low-pH and phosphate-free formula
