I don't believe it is non-toxic, but "less" toxic. And less
sweet, so dogs aren't so tempted to lap it up. I still would
never allow Tucker near it.

I used some once, since my 100Q was starting to heat up a bit
due to it's old crusty radiator. Didn't really seem to help, but
didn't hurt either. It is a wetting agent that supposedly increases
heat transfer from the water to the radiator.
It does not increase the boiling point, just helps to dissipate
