    I use it religeously. If you live in a climate where it doesnt freeze, 2 bottles to the rest spring water, isd the best coolant you can get.

    However, I forget how much to use with coolant. It is good stuff!

      It helped alittle when we put some in my old friends 95 vic. His had a overheating issue. It kind of helped. I think he needed a new t-stat on top of it but it worked pretty good.

        All i run in my 85 is tap water ( i know i should use distilled, maybe ill switch when i swap heads) and a bottle of Redline water wetter. My car stays under 200 degrees as long as i dont sit idling for more than a few minutes.

          Spring water is no better than tap water really. Distilled is the way to go

            if we were talking about batteries I would agree with the distilled water thing, however....


            I used to work in a plant with a large electroplating operation. We used tons of distiller/deionized water. It was bad about making the cpvc schedule80 pipes it ran through, very brittle. (cpvc will handle straight hydrocloric acid, pure clorine, etc. for decades with no problems) It seems that extremely pure water likes to disolve/absorb whatever minerals/chemicals it comes into contact with. I have seen cross sections of grey piping only a year or two old that was white and crumbly on the inside to a depth of a 1/4" or more.

            The long and short of it is, if it is distilled when you put it in, it won't be pure for very long as it will absorb minerals etc from the block,hoses,gaskets. It won't hurt anything, but I wouldn't waste my money unless the local water supply is really really bad. Even then a cheapo gallon of spring water should be just fine.


            Batteries on the other hand... well stick with distilled.

              Hmm, thats interesting. I never realized distilled water would pick crap up like that. I use tap water here, its not horrible but it does have some lime and chlorine in it.

                    I've seen it in action. Dropped my buddy's B2200 Mazda 24* at all times.

                    As for the water, I run tap water/antifreeze and flush it every few oil changes.
