      Comments about Advance Auto Parts Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant (1 Gallon):

      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.

              Oh man. A review on coolant. Hmm. Ethyl Glycol. I work on literally everything. Boats, commercial equipment, daily drivers, race cars, sport bike etc. Now with that said, this stuff works for nearly every system requiring antifreeze. Good stuff with a great value.

                Comments about Advance Auto Parts Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant (1 Gallon):

                I never buy ready mix radiator fluid if I can avoid it. Let's face it, unless you are stuck someplace you save a lot of money by mixing your own and not paying for water and convenience. Couple that with saving a few bucks over buying a name brand and you have a winner.

                I live in South Dakota and it gets down to -40 F some nights, so I always mix antifreeze for the lowest temperature possible. This is my first time using the Advanced label, but it's already held up on a -32 night.

                100% - Will by this again when I need it.

                            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?

                            "Hi db! I'am happy to help! Yes, some manufacturers recommend sodium nitrite based corrosion inhibitors, however silicate and phosphate based coolants are equally useful as well. This Advance Auto parts coolant contains 2-Ethyl Hexanoic Acid and Neodecanoic Acid which are OAT (Organic Acid Technology) based and are commonly used in the extended life or Dex-cool formula. So this coolant is equally good as a nitrite based one."

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

                            Have read through most Q&A and the MSDS but have not found any reference to my Q...

                            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?

                            TIA...

                              Hi db! I'am happy to help! Yes, some manufacturers recommend sodium nitrite based corrosion inhibitors, however silicate and phosphate based coolants are equally useful as well. This Advance Auto parts coolant contains 2-Ethyl Hexanoic Acid and Neodecanoic Acid which are OAT (Organic Acid Technology) based and are commonly used in the extended life or Dex-cool formula. So this coolant is equally good as a nitrite based one.

                              Hi Brandon, great question! I researched and found that this antifreeze would be silica free.

                            I'm going to use this in my 1985 Chevy S10 2.8L V6. I just need to know the TOTAL coolant capacity of the vehicle so I can get the correct mixture. Any help would be appreciated.

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