    Default anti-freeze and forecast for -20C

    Car has been lying unused and ungaraged for a week (broken front spring) and will be there until the weather improves. So the vehicle is well and truly iced up.
    With temperatures dropping over the last week to -8C and the forecast being -20C at the weekend can I be confident that the factory filled anti-freeze will cope?

    Not worried about the water turning to sludge as long as it doesn't freeze!

    Car is a 2004 2.2 direct estate and the anti-freeze is still as original.

    Its supposed to last upto 5 years, iirc down to -34 at a 50%mix. If in doubt, drain it out
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
