I prefer green. However, now multi use types are common. Don’t use orange! Buy concentrated and dilute. The 50/50 stuff is half water. Why pay for so much for water?

Does the water/antifreeze ratio matter being in the desert?

Add a bottle of Water Wetter. Coolant helps raise the boiling point of water. What’s your thermostat temp? Does it have a copper or aluminum radiator?
