I have found it in e-bay, Mobil brand for 10.99 a litre. Needless to say I just use the pinky/orange antifreeze sold in Halfrauds. If your intent in using Chrysler approved antifreeze, try going to a local dealer, although from what I have read they are pretty clueless on the subject.

If you can get DuPont Zerex G-05, that is completely compatible.

that is no lie. I asked for antifreeze they said it was out of stock so they ordered it and had it delivered to my house. when I opened it up I had powersteering fluid instead >.<

As far as I'm aware HOAT is unavailable in the UK.
I've gone with an OAT 5 year coolant. I'm currently getting my PT back on the road after a 3 year hibernation. As part of the work I've put new coolant in.

I contacted loads of Jeep/Chrysler/Dodge dealers and all of them said the same thing...we use OAT coolant.

So I gave the engine and rad a thorough flush (removed the rad, I was fitting a new fan motor anyway)

New 'stat and temp sender as well.

I'll keep you posted on how it goes
