Needed a couple of gallons Pentosin A3 to do a drain and fill of the '12 Accord, since the car has a little over 71K now and is approaching five years in service.
Using a 25% off coupon code as well as a five off twenty speedperks coupon that popped up, I was down to $21.28 for the pair.
This is a premixed product, just like the HG coolant, but that still seemed a reasonable price for a German brand coolant suitable to the cooling system of this car.

Currently the best deal on Asian PHOAT AF is at PepBoys on OEM Brand 'Concentrate' AF by Recochem for $14.90 gallon with online order store pick up, pick your tint. An equivalent premix would have be in the ~$7.50/gal range to match that. And concentrate much more suitable for complete system flush/exchange.

https://www.pepboys.com/search/?term=oem+antifreeze

Don't have a PB nearby, [email protected] has the same AF for $17.67 delivered to your door. Until a few days ago it was only ~$10/gallon delivered. Still a good price for a concentrated Asian PHOAT if no PB nearby.

Not familiar with "HG" coolant. But Honda TypeII is a premix as are most Asian PHOATS. Zerex Asian Formula premix is now available in blue tint to match Honda tint too. But PB OEM concentrate still best deal I've seen.

PepBoys had it on Ebay OEM Reochem the other week for $9.99 shipped for a jug of concentrate. I bought another jug of the Toyota red. Did notice the second jug I bought had a different label on it, but basically said the same thing as the old label. Still made in Canada.

Yep, that was a very good deal on Asian PHOAT concentrate delivered to you door. And it lasted longer than I thought it would. Antifreeze even on a good deal must not be a quick mover. Still even at current prices, it tops the premix prices I've seen.

I suspect the Canadians know a thing or two about antifreeze.

That Pentofrost A3 is made in Japan and most likely the OEM coolant rebottled

Reference please.

Even if true, I wouldn't pay more for it than PB OEM brand or Zerex Asian formula.

So first part confirmed, second part holds as speculation. smile2

Seems I've read the same/similar speculation about Beck Arnley Blue AF too at some point. In the end though, all Asian PHOAT AFs no matter coo, with OEM brand being the only concentrate of the group.
