Dexcool is Ethylene Glycol base just like Prestone et al so it has the same
heat transfer characteristics. I think you are referring to the so called
"environmentally friendly" coolant which has Propylene Glycol as a base.

I don't know if the heat transfer characteristics of proplene glycol are
different. I have been told that the environmental issue is also not so
clear as PG, while being less toxic to mammals is not as biodegradable as EG.
