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!

          My GMC truck requires Dex-cool coolant. This 50-50 blend saves the time required to mix straight Dex-cool with distilled water to reach the same mixture, not to mention the purchase of the water.

                    Pre-mixed is a smart way to buy antifreeze now. Sure, you can buy concentrate and mix it with distilled water - do not use tap water - but that's a lot of extra work. Buy it pre-mixed and you know the concentration is correct and the base water is pure. This is a good product from a reliable supplier along with the convenience of dealing with your local Advance Auto Parts store.

                        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.

                        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.

                        I'm happy to help, TV! Your 2010 Acura TSX and 2004 TL require Honda Type 2 Engine Coolant/Antifreeze or equivalent. Your 2009 Toyota Corolla requires Toyota Long Life HOAT (Hybrid Organic Acid Technology) Coolant or equivalent. Your Lexus (assuming that it's also a 2009) will likely utilize Lexus Long Life HOAT (Hybrid Organic Acid Technology) Coolant or equivalent.

                        This Prestone DEX-COOL® 50/50 Prediluted Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant (Part No. AF850) is an organic acid technology coolant engineered GM vehicles.

                        Your Honda and Acura will run best with a coolant such as Pentosin Pentofrost A3 (Part No. 8115207), sold through CARQUEST. Your Toyota and Lexus will run best with Pentosin Pentofrost A4 (Part No. 8115209), also through CARQUEST.
