ELC, Evans, Stock, Kool Aid?

What's the best coolant. It's hard to get a straight answer on this, and an explanation.

Some people swear by Evans waterless, other say no. Some say green and no ELC, others say ELC all the way.

I am personally planning on Fleetguard or CAT ELC when I switch over, because I have either of those readily available.


What's the word?

First you need to define "best".

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.

My recommendation is either EC-1 rated coolant or Fleetguard Extended Life coolant.

Cat elc is great and even better if you know someone that works for a dealer.
