I've had a couple of customers try it, and in spite of all the promotional information on their website, saw no advantage to the waterless product over distilled water and Porsche's coolant at 50/50. Ultimately, both customers ended up going back to the factory coolant. There is also some question about using this stuff on the track as some facilities will not even allow antifreeze as spills are more slippery and harder to clean up than plain water.

They have both Jay and Edd hawking this stuff? My two favorite guys! That's almost enough to convince me! Ok, maybe not. But for a second...

Back in the day, I had a 1971 Triumph TR-6 in red just like one in the Edd China video. Beautiful car.

Maybe this is an interesting read: Waterless coolant

Also you have to mention to get all old coolant fluid out of the system first.

Here is another later video that explains some more points:

And i think there is a cause why Jay isn't putting it in high performance cars.
