What is it's thermal conductivity?
What is it's viscosity? (does it put a heavier load on "water" pump?)
How much does it cost?

I understand it has a lot of advantages but is expensive. For normal use not really needed. More of a racing thing.

I one warning on this stuff you have to make sure there is NO water in your system.

Also if you're trying to fix a problem FIX THE PROBLEM first!

I have seen it demonstrated a number of time on video one from a manufacture and that is where I got my info. Not worth much but more useful that nothing. Using something does not make one you an expert.

You're the expert so what say you?

Respectfully,

Mike

I saw a demo and physically touch it . RPW a Wholsale distributor carries it but even at my cost I never could justify trying it.

The one problem is for maximum Benifits the cooling suystem should be flushed and chemically cleaned . Then the system really should be air dried which takes several days to a week in many applications. You could get a couple gallons of 90% isopropyl run it through the sytem to speed the dring process.

If you read the technical info you could have 3% by capacity of water in a system and it would still acording to that ife work?

That is the extent of my input at this time about it?

We learn the text and then practice the lessens to become experenced!

the track by me has a big issue with coolant and wants us to run straight water because coolant is so hard to clean up. they may or may not have a problem with this stuff. if i was the tech inspector, i'd be more likely to make the car use water as that would be easier than researching this stuff.

What happens if you blow a hose or some other leak, you can't just add water to get back home. Your gonna have to carry a least 2 gallons of the stuff with you at all times.
