Napa used to be the only game in town, Advance auto started selling it a couple years go and you can stack coupons and promo codes on it and bring the price down but it seems like they never have it in stock.

    Conventional green has always worked but it seemed to get nasty sooner and with the Shadow being the last thing still using it I decided to end it.

    Okay. I figured there was a good reason. I am planning to run the equivalent Shell / Cat ELC coolant myself. Mainly because we stock it by the pallet, and it's reasonably priced. (~$10/gallon) - 6.0 diesel guys swear it's superior to gold coolant / g05, etc. for the engine. I just don't know if there is a real reason *why* it's superior. We outsell the red coolant like 5 pallets to 1 green so we tend to have it sooner than green.

    I never run something like coolant until its 'worn out' because something else always fails and since our cooling systems only average 2.5 gallons at the fullest I just pour in some fresh and keep going. The G05 stuff will get nasty and cruddy over time... something my dad has a hard time understanding why his truck kept running hot and overheating. Knocked the tanks off the radiator core and that pos was clogged solid.

    Gotcha. Keep in mind this stuff is rated to last ~600k miles as long as it stays in the cooling system (;
