Since nearly all anti-freezes have phosphates, and since phosphate free
anti-freezes cost more, it would seem safe to assume that relatively
inexpensive Zerex has phosphate in it.  You might consider using Prestone
4/60. (At least, I think it was prestone). They specifically say it has no
phosphate in it and that it is good for 4 years or 60,000 miles.  I got some
1.5 years ago at Walmart for about $8 /gallon.  Don't know if the stuff is
still available.
