[DML] Re: Coolant Level - Winter Seepage



You really should use water. The coolant (permanant type anti-freeze
ethylene-glycol based) NEEDS to be mixed with soft water to create a
50/50 mix UNLESS you already bought the diluted, ready to add stuff.
Any of the nationaly branded anti-freeze is OK, just make sure it says
"safe for aluminum". Stick with the green stuff if you can get it.
