Coolant

Recommended Posts

noticed my coolant was in need of a top up but don't know what to use, the stuff in at the mo looks pink, its only just below halfway so was thinking about just topping up, do i just get some pink stuff from Halfords or is it special stuff?

aye the pink premixed from Halfords is a 50/50 mix of water and comma extreme red coolant(£20)

or get the concentrate comma extreme red (£25 from Halfords)

this stuff is the equivalent of the vw g12+ summer coolant/winter antifreeze (longer service life is one advantage of the pink over blue --- 5 years to 2 years respectively)

if its pink stay pink there are different brands but essentially the same stuff

blue glycol mixed with this pink formula reacts and sludges up the water ways so dont mix them
