    Living here in SC I still use antifreeze. Antifreeze is cheep insurance! My old Sea Doo I'd pull the temp sensor and pour in. Now with my VX I had a brain storm. I buy 2 gals of AF, dump into a 5gal bucket,mixing 1-1 ratio and then connect to a

    via hose made up from tigon tubing and hose ends purchased from Lowes just like when flushing. I'll follow the flushing steps as described in the ops manual. I'll pickle the engine until the bucket is empty. Sounds like a lot of work but well worth it.
