Buy it for the jug!

It's expensive for this bottle because it's premixed. But mixing your own is a little rough without another container. So buy this bottle and one that's not mixed. Use this one until empty...Read complete review

It's expensive for this bottle because it's premixed. But mixing your own is a little rough without another container. So buy this bottle and one that's not mixed. Use this one until empty and then pour half of the nondilluted mix. Add water and you have two jugs ready to roll!

Not worth the money.

The pre-diluted Dexcool works, and works well, but I never saw the point of paying for water- just buy the undiluted Dexcool and mix it yourself- save some money!

      • Q:

        What is the density of 50/50 coolant mix, specifically for Chrysler vehicles
        Asked on 8/25/2015 by Rajesh

        1 answer

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Good question Rajesh, I will be happy to help. We recommend that you use between a 50% and 70% concentration of Prestone DEX-COOL 50/50 Prediluted Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant (1 Gallon) (Part No. AF850). At least 50% is necessary to give the adequate amount of corrosion protection, as well as freeze/boil-over protection. However, we do not recommend more than 70% antifreeze. This would cause restriction of the heat transfer capabilities, corrosion protection, and freeze protection.

          A:

          I'm happy to help, LuvmySuzuki! The recommended coolant for your 2008 Suzuki Forenza 2.0L L4 is ethylene glycol. Prestone DEX-COOL® 50/50 Prediluted Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant (Part No. AF850) is an organic acid technology type antifreeze/coolant and is not recommended for use in vehicles that do not call for it. Peak Conventional Green Antifreeze/Coolant (Part No. PKA0G3/12016) is an ethylene glycol antifreeze/coolant. It will need to be mixed at a 50/50 ratio with distilled water. for use in your vehicle.
