Regular automotive coolantt here, Aussie coolant anyway, not anti-freeze. Bascially has anti rust properties and a little lubricant.
Wasn't on the list?

Not antifreeze--but automotive coolant...sounds interesting could you tell me what is in it?--most US stuff is Poly Ethylene Glycol--but the Enviro stuff is less toxic Poly Propylene Glycol. Not just for freezing point but for raising the boiling point as well. Apparently it does not help heat transfer, however.
I look forward to trying out the Cosworth stuff--it sounds like a winner.

OK in Australia generally, depending on where you live and the season you just run regular coolant in your vehicles. Its not anti freeze or in some cases anti boil, it is just anti corrosion to a point.
Here is a popular brand in OZ. (PDF) Not a bad flick through really

It's basically the same as our stuff by the look of it...Ethylene Glycol with silicon antifoaming additives--foaming seems to be the big selling point in that bit of literature...looks like good stuff,

That would be me... I will have to try and find the time that I ordered...will email shortly--thank you for your interest in expediting my order!

EDIT: Email sent RE: delayed order.

It's a misnomer.

Technically, Anti-freeze is just 100%, straight anti-freeze from the bottle. "Coolant" is generally used to refer to anti-freeze as well, but it really stands for a blend of anti-freeze and water, usually 50/50, but often 70/30.

So many people SAY "coolant" when refering to anti-freeze.

Yeah--for our purposes the only thing Poly Propylene Glycol or Poly Ethylene Glycol or Ethylene GLycol or any of those type of Automotive "coolants" are doing is keeping the dissimilar metals in the loop from reacting (electolysis) and keeping biologicals from accumulating. Adding those "coolants" will actually lessen the heat exchange value of the liquid in the loop. So far Distilled and water wetter seem to be pretty much the best for heat exchange--but the Cosworth stuff might be a different story....and it's blue. Which is always a plus....

I have a quick question. Why is there an $8 handling fee? Is it because it is considered a chemical? Just wondering as I just ordered a bottle. This stuff is going to look fantastic with blue UV dye in my cooling plant (click the link in my sig if you're wondering what that is). But thanks for the promo code!
