Been under the hood of a 200q20v lately?  Some serious heat under there; the rack sits at the back, with heat from the turbo on one side, and the radiator fan on the other, both cats below, and a nice insulating hood up top.  How much out of spec is this stuff?

Are you reinstalling used racks?  Why else would it take a gallon of fresh fluid?  I'd just get a little filter, and reuse the old stuff to flush, then use the quart or two of new for the system...
