      I like to buy this kind and make my own 50/50 mix. Saves money and creates more antifreeze for when I might need it later.

          I used this antifreeze based on the specs for Toyota and for its full strength since I can buy water cheaper to dilute the antifreeze.

              Have used this antifreeze for years.
              Never any problems. Have used it and mixed
              it with other Green colored antifreezes.
              Don't know if you can mix it with Dexcool so beware.

                          This product is an excellent deal. The same high quality of the big named brands , but at a greater value.It is universal. This means that you can use it to fill all your engine coolant needs.

                            This works even better then most regular name brands at a fraction of the cost. It's a no-brainer to buy this and save your money for other things like repairs or upgrades. I have tried other brands like Prestone, peak, chevron, Havoline, and even Walmart. This one seems to work best and treats my cooling system the way it should be. The pre-diluted is also good if you want 50/50. This is even cheaper then almost all of the ones I mentioned, which makes it the most economical choice too.

                                    Asked: Is this product nitrite- and amino-FREE, or NOT.

                                    Got from John the Car-Doc: This coolant is OAT based and not nitrite. My recommendation was that this coolant is as good as a nitrite based one.


                                    Still need to know... Is it 'amino-FREE, or NOT.'

                                    TIA,

                                    Some manufacturers, in particular some European ones recommend that the corrosion inhibitors be nitrite- and amino-FREE. Be sure to ref nitrite, not nitrate.

                                    Could you please check on that?

                                    Too much explanation here, is this product nitrite- and amino-FREE, or NOT.

                                      That's a great question, TideFan99. The total capacity of your cooling system is 12.2 quarts.
