    Default Coolant Question

    Just noticed the bottle for the coolant in very low and when i unscrewed the cap it was covered in white powder. Ive got some anti-freeze/coolant, how much should i dilute it?
    Cheers Steve

    pink = longlife, orange = not so long life. They don't mix and I think cause soap like bubbles if they do mix
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Are we sure the pink/orange are not same thing

    I bought a litre yesterday and just asked for Red which i thought was the choice between the long life and the old blue which you can't mix together

    Yep, they are. The GM long life stuff is more orangey when concentrate, and goes kinda more pinky when diluted 50/50. I've just redone my coolant and noticed that.
