ID:	305623 At least that's what it's called, Wonder if it could help any? Instruction says 1 ounce per quart of system capacity and no less than 15% of antifreeze...............hmmmm

    well. heres what I think about it:

    many places top off the system with water. so your alcohol percentage goes down because it gets diluted. I think all this would be is concentrated anti-freeze that has a higher boil point and freezing protection.

    Even though water absorbs heat better than alcohol. it suffers through other disadvantages compared to "antifreeze" mixes which fight off those disadvantages. ex: Boil point increases to 136C as oposed to 100C. as well as lower the freezing point.

    I took these figures off a bottle of antifreeze, which indicated 136C at 70% coolant. Compared to 129C at 50%.


    in brief, alcohol absorbs water quicker and releases the heat faster than water.
    pure alcohol would make the engine run cooler. but it evaporares overtime leaving behind contaminants.

    Anti-freeze also has other products in it that inhibit corrosion from all of the incompatible metals inside the cooling systems and lubricates pumps.

    hope I helped.

    BRP suggests 40% coolant, 60% distilled water. Or 50/50 premixed coolant. Add some water wetter too!

    I run it mine at 70-30 or 60-40 depending on what I get. never had a problem with it overheating.

    water is actually worse because it stores heat, so even though it absorbs it slowly,it also releases it slowly. seeing as the thermostat opens up at 180F which is 82C I rather have more of a safe zone before the coolant starts boiling over.
    So personally I would not go below 50-50.

    But as a safe tip, replace the coolant periodically. the alcohol evaporates and leaves water behind because its harder to evaporate, so coolant that was 40% coolant last year; can become 30% this year. which becomes easier to boil. Top up with antifreeze mix or concentrate. not water.

    I run 75% distilled water to 25% antigreenshit. Water pulls more heat out and in FL, especially in a garage you don't have to worry about freezing. It's for longevity and better cooling. You will NOT notice a performance difference with changing ratios.

    Basically ask the local knowledgeable racers what mix they run and you're safe to run the same.
