    This was among the first things to do back at the beginning of December. -37 degrees was the tester readings, so it's all good. Maybe too good.

    This dumb ass forgot all about it lol, was gonna go and get my Vec B back from my Inlaws (been sat there since just before Christmas and never been started) and just remembered that after a major water leak in the Summer I didn't put any Anti Freeze in at all, Think I'll just leave it now until the Snows all melted lol, and hope that no damage has been done

    I changed mine in the spring last year. I put VX long life in at a 50/50 mix. Should be ok for a while.

    I did'nt know they had those, thanks for the info, I will pick one of those up next time I'm near a Halfords.

    I'm assuming all new supplied cars have already had antifreeze added, but it's always assuring to be able to check. Cheap enough too.
