And, when you change/fill ALWAYS use distilled water. Cheap, and no
ionzation to carry the current that causes electrolosys.

I use G12 in customer cars that have it already, standard or ling life
coolant in all others (including my own). I never use Dex-cool, infact
flush it out of every vehicle my relatives buy.
