I present this:



Unfortunately I can't seem to find that on Skinneelabs' main website anymore, as it's from an older article that I can't find.

And anyway, this answer is very good as well, though they only use ethylene/glycol mixture in some additives, usually the ones labelled "anti-corrosive," not really plain dyes.

look at the specific heat chart of water, you do have to convert so they use the same units, which they give you at the bottom of the charts

I'd like to see their testing setup for those results. Within 1c temps for most of those fluids, are well within the margin of error and quite frankly, not something to care about unless shooting for record temps or something.

I agree with you that they're all within the margin of error, but it's some data to start with I suppose.

I still wouldn't subject my loop to dyes versus colored tubing because it doesn't provide a benefit but has potential consequences which I have observed from around here, like stained tubing, stained blocks, stained fittings, and the possibility of gunking up, though that's a highly debatable point.
