    Default Which coolant is everyone using

    I've picked up some Nulon flush and Nulon red coolant concentrate but has anyone used the Evan waterless stuff...no need to even change over for the lifetime,etc...

    Cheers,

    There was a really good discussion last year regarding coolant, I can't find it at the moment but it went into the thermal efficiency of various types and it was water with inhibitor(no anti freeze) that had the best results.

    Mine gets a bit warm on hot days. Instead of fixing cause properly I put 40 below in. Seemed a little better. But I think it is more a water wetter. Otherwise I use the Nulon race stuff. No glycol.

    Evans water-less can only be topped up with the same product, can't mix with water.

    No glycol type B coolant (no anti-freeze) runs cooler and ok for track.

    The Evans stuff is junk.

    I ended up buying the Recpo Green Coolant and Ill mix to a 50/50 ratio with demineralised water...figure this would suffice the beast :-)

    And as a side note, who changes there radiator hoses and heater hoses when changing coolant over ?...I can squeeze them and there is no crunch sounds...I have flushed out the top radiator hose and over flow hose...clean water...no brown sludge or anything.

    Cheers,

    And how many people drain the block when they change coolant? A pain to do when on a complete car, but better than draining just the radiator and top half of block only.
