              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 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.

                        It says it works in all cars but i need to make sure it is just as good as the VW required/approved type so that it will not cause me problems with the cooling system down the road.

                        I don't expect you to know this, but if you can at least help me find out where i can find this info(and the reqirement numbers,) i will be glad to buy this brand instead of the high priced German G13!
                        Thank you!

                        G13 Coolant - 1 Gallon Lilac Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant. G13 is an ethylene glycol/glycerin based extended life antifreeze/coolant that combines the fast healing aluminum protection associated with silicate additives with the extended cooling system protection of organic acid technology. When mixed in the recommended ratio with distilled or demineralized water, its chemical inhibitors protect engine coolant passages, radiator, water pump, and cooling system pipes from corrosion damage. It is both nitrate and phosphate free and compatible with engine gaskets and seal

                          Hi Charly, I'm glad to assist you. This CARQUEST Oil & Fluids Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant (1 Gallon) (Part No. ANT 301) should be used by mixing 50% distilled water with this coolant. Adding concentrated (straight, un-mixed) antifreeze/coolant to your cooling system will not harm your radiator or cooling system. However, pure antifreeze will actually absorb heat rather than dissipate it, which will potentially lead to engine overheating.

                          Hello Mike. This antifreeze should be used for just topping off situations. Both antifreezes are green the 50/50 Prediluted antifreeze is mixed with water while the other is straight antifreeze and needs to be mixed with water. Some people find the 50/50 more convenient.

G13 is an ethylene glycol/glycerin based extended life antifreeze/coolant that combines the fast healing aluminum protection associated with silicate additives with the extended cooling system protection of organic acid technology. When mixed in the recommended ratio with distilled or demineralized water, its chemical inhibitors protect engine coolant passages, radiator, water pump, and cooling system pipes from corrosion damage. It is both nitrate and phosphate free and compatible with engine gaskets and seal
