It has to be a HOAT antifreeze, Hybrid Organic Acid Technology. If you use the wrong antifreeze you can get bad corrosion in your system and/or your waterpump could fail. Keep in mind it's a 5 year/150k mile antifreeze. It's not like you are changing it every year. It's not that expensive when you average it out over it's life expectancy.
