Right now AutoZone is clearing out Pentosin antifreeze. 1.5L bottles are $5 and gallons are $10.

Scored 12x bottles of SF and 12x bottles of E.

Well done. Grab it all laugh

All Asian - those coolants come in gallons.

The 1.5L bottles are for European cars.

I have never heard of them either. But then again, I only use the regular old fashioned green stuff or DexCool.

This has been on clearance for a while. The bottles are caked with dust.

I went on the Pentosin website and it seems that the 1.5 liter bottles are for European vehicles (mainly VW) while the gallon jugs are for Asian vehicles...The EL Green and Red are concentrates while the Super EL Pink and Blue are 50/50 pre-mixed...all of these Asian formula's are HOAT's that contain phosphates and appear to be the exact same except for the dye color. The only thing I don't understand is why the concentrate is only 'Extended life' while the 50/50 pre-mix is 'Super Extended Life'??? What are opinions on how long the concentrate EL can be run in a Hyundai or Mazda or Toyota?

Isn't AutoZone going to push Peak's OEM line instead of Pentosin now?

Now you got enough for 50+ years. I hope your cars make it.
