I'm using the Zerex myself.

Can't see the benefit to OE Porsche for the cost.

Admittedly, I'm very old school, but Porsche coolant still sounds like an oxymoron....

The Zerex G40 coolant is actually made in Germany by BASF for Valvoline. Good stuff.

Then I will have nice mix ... I had READ replaced and used OE Made In Canada Porsche Coolant ( factory fill was still partially there )

I guess you should be ok adding the G40 ?

Thx

Just use Peak Global Lifetime. Or a Dexcool. The Porsche stuff is very similar to it. Go to Pedros website for more info or Burner's Cars on You Tube

There are only a few companies in the whole world that make coolant. Just use the proper spec coolant.

Only the finest for a classic Luftgekühlt!

Pricey, though.

And it can be cheaper at O'Reilly and NAPA.

BASF and CCI supply a majority of the world's coolants as ready-fill or add pack concentrate.

I got curious, so I contacted Valvoline about their recommended AF for my Porsche. They said to use Valvoline Zerex Dexcool or Maxlife.

Don't overthink this- LOL
