Hi Guys,

 

Sure this will be somewhere but just want a bit of advice. With the vast range of anti-freeze out there is there a specific one that people prefer to put in their Lotus or is it just general preference? What does anybody use?

 

Thanks

The blue stuff (assuming your engine doesn't need OAT) from Halfrauds, it's easy to get some more to top up if you have an ermm header tank to turbo hose split......

You cant mix the Glycol and OAT stuff. The colour is normally a good guide. I use the Pinky Halfords OAT in my S2.

Dont buy the ready mixed as its robbery. Buy the concentrated and mix it 50/50 with water.
