Out of curiosity, I went to the Prestone website to look for a Product Data sheet. none available.

I haven't put Prestone in any of my cars for a very long time. Thought I would give them another chance, since they have done a lot of reformulation in recent years. But if they won't tell me what base formulation (OAT, HOAT, PHOAT, etc.), I won't give them a second look.

Thats a great price, but I won't set foot in a walmart. Only buy from them if they deliver. Its a whole day event going there, finding parking while avoiding hitting the walking dead customers who just wander the parking lot, then trying to find the actual item just to discover its sold out or wasn't restocked.

so two of you posted that you dislike or wont use prestone, but give no reason.

when you make such posts....does it not dawn on you how worthless of a post that is?

granted its your opinion, but i'm sure others want to know why you wont use it or dislike it.

I do not know if this is the traditional green coolant or one of the newer coolants . I did not read very closely , as I do not personally buy 50/50 coolant .

Best of luck to you , :-)
