As has been discussed here before by me, DI water will _destroy_ the inside
of your metallic engine. The radiator caps and hoses will be fine.

De-ionized water doesn't like being ion free, and will pull every free ion
from whatever it touches. It corrodes stainless 316 before the very eyes.

Distilled water is what you want for the cooling system if your tap water
is gookey.
