its because the aintfreeze cost more
Chuck LOL! Although I disagree in a serious sense! I love that answer, how come I didn't come up with it! LOL!
Barn Owl; I use regular antifreeze and buy NAPAKool (cooling system treatment Part # 4058 from NAPA) and add it per mixing reccomendations on the bottle! ! There's no reason to buy that high dollar DD anti-freeze or even they're additive (as long as you use ONE!) !
Busnut 104; You probably don't have any more of a leak than with straight water! It's just that the antifreeze is easier to see (GREEN), and doesn't eveporate as easy! No one really things about seeing a little water on the ground (unless it's either -30* or 120* outside and hasn't rained in 2 months!LOL!), but let that water turn green and everyone notices it!
Phil; $8.00 a gallon for diluted, so $16.00 regular sounds right? Come on down to the "TN FALL BUS BASH" and for less than $10.00 a gallon we'll fill yer bays, beds, toad and anything else we can with straight antifreeze so you can go home and make some scratch ! I'd never buy "diluted" antifreeze as I have a problem paying for water unless it's the utility company or drinking water!!
Ok that's my 2 cents worth! BK
