A long time ago, in a previous life, I did a quickie analysis on a cool suit
for a basic Space Station Space Suit.  NASA, who is EXTREMELY 
careful about what they put near an astronaut, had no problem with using
P. Glycol as the working fluid.   Kind of a Good Housekeeping (Station-keeping?)
seal of approval.  I figured it was only a matter of time before someone
sold the stuff for cars.
