    I'd ring the service centre of a main dealer. Bet they'll tell you what alternatives you could use. They're not going to lose business since there's no way you're going to pay them to do it.

    And just having read your Verdi post, get someone at Karls to bung some coolant in!

    No change Tony (which is a good thing). Best guess is early March. My target is to collect on the ratburger Daz has promised me if I bring it up to Brunters :).

    Hi Tony motorcycle coolant will do its soft water antifreeze mix,
    dont use tap water and mix it with antifreeze it will just rot the castings, gaskets over a period of time,
    the dealers will say only use agip and dont mix it maybe or maybe not,
    try and stick to whats in there and we know what that is,
    but as i said motorcycle coolant will do to top it up and next service get them to drain and flush the system,inc heater matrix,radiator and pipes front to rear,
    Dale.

    Tony, You can be the coolant you need in Halfords. You must make sure that you can use it for ALU engines. It will say on the back of the bottle. Get the ready mix coolant if you are unsure of the amount to mix.
