I think the 5 price tag was a lucky one-off. Like I said, I think they put the cash towards their Christmas Doo???

Well, I dont think its the case cant imagine mixing it with tap water (well, atleast I didnt, got proper destilled stuff because I do like my car but its more convenient I suppose, same as pre-mixed bottles of screenwash from Halfords... laziness... ?

This. So many younger folk, or those not minded to ever lift open a bonnet, might think mixing two liquids is too much hassle especially after working out how to open the bonnet in the first place!

"I need a spare bottle? What does 50/50 mean? What's a funnel?!"

Surprised you all are so against premixed. I do only by the concentrated Volvo, but for my Hilux I buy the Toyota super long life premixed (think that's all they do). If ever it needs topping up i just pour a drop in. I don't have to 1) search for a suitable mixing container 2). clean it 3) mix 150 mls of water with 150 mls of coolant.

Bet you all buy diced carrots thought you? C'mon admit it.

Here's the ready mixed I bought.







Hardly used it though. In the 2 years I've had the car I think I've put in about 200ml of coolant if that.
