I saw this in the dollar store for $8 a gallon. Itís just like Prestone, etc. HOAT, but pale yellow instead of neon green. I worked on a vehicle and replaced the old stuff with this. It tests at -40, and the car likes it. Itís a good deal if you donít want to go to Walmart.

Is that full strength or 50/50?

I beg to differ, as 50/50 at $8 is like buying full strength for $16 a gallon

That would be a good deal for full strength but not 50/50.


The "thinking" man's friend.

Texaco originally developed Dex-Cool with GM. It seems to work as well as any Dex-Clone.
