They’re marked new on the jug and are certainly new in my area. I’m not taking any position. Enjoy.

Pretty sure Prestone gets a waiver in the US of A on mandate to display skull and cross bones prominently on the front of their product. ???

I believe regular prestone is now HOAT. So the difference between it and the specific ones is the color.


yup

There's nothing really confusing about it, Prestone added phosphate to their OAT formula with the their latest Cor-guard additive package so now instead of having a straight OAT (like Chrysler and GM use) they have a P-OAT just like all the asian car companies use. Just add blue dye and you have a Honda Type 2 like coolant, add pink dye and you get something like Toyota's SLLC, add a dark green and you get a Mazda FL22 like coolant, etc, etc. There's nothing wrong with 2-EHA, it's used by Audi, VW, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Mini, Jaguar, etc without any issues.

Warnings are on the back... I would think...

Tide pods needed frontal warnings too right ??


And what age would children truly understand a poison symbol of head and cross bones ?? And a responsible parent needs to teach what that symbol means.

I was 4 years or maybe 5 years old when I was taught what that meant... First thing I remember with that symbol was a acid container.

It has a warning of reproductive harm and tells the user not to drink it, but I think the skull and cross bones is better in the front/center...really emphasizes that this stuff is deadly!

True...

But it's only as good and effective as a responsible parent teaching a young child what that means....


And again there are warnings on the back.


And how many dumb full grown adults died from Tide pods ???


Even water.... Can be fatal.... By drinking a whole, whole lot of it at one time.

A radiol show did a contest of having people drink a extremely high amount of water and having them hold their need to go to the bathroom. . Of course one if the contestants died from that.

Rodney Dangerfield: I went to the auto parts store to buy some Prestone coolant. The girl asked me if I’d like a slurpy cup with that or was I going to drink it from the bottle. No respect. laugh
