Thanks for looking. I went to the Walmart as well. IAT is not available in our area on their site. I found some at NAPA.

[QUOTE=shew01;1936718]I think it’s a function of available shelf space.

Kinda like ethanol free gas is still around in small quantities, but you have to hunt for it.


Interesting comment on ethanol free gas. Here in the Boise Idaho area, more and more stations are selling it. I just saw a banner at a station that said "We now have ethanol free gas". So it's getting more popular. It's usually about 20 cents more per gallon for regular but premium non ethanol is higher. One new station with 4 rows of pumps has 2 non ethanol pumps in each row and each pump has hoses on both sides. Each pump has both regular and premium. It's common for newer fuel injected cars to gain 2-3 MPG using it. Some more, some less.

If you have an O'Reilly in your area, they carry multiple types of IAT antifreeze. They also carry other hard-to-find stuff. I just picked up a tube of Lubricam distributor cam grease.

Here in NC, you can get away with a 1:2 mix – 1 gal AF + 2 gal H2O. This protects down to about 0° F, which is lower than it ever gets here. Means I only have to buy 1 jug of concentrate instead of 3 jugs of 50/50.

The other advantage to Sierra is that is safe around animals and will not injure them if they get it on their paws etc. If you have a zoo nearby, check with to see where they get it.

Prestone has a propylene glycol green AF as well that O'Reilly carries.

Remember that the mixes will be different for ethylene vs propylene.

Try a farm supply. Always have it for old farm equipment and they generally are fairly inexpensive for those thrifty farmers.

I use Evans Waterless Coolant in my pressurized system. My temperature gauge is always in mid range even when poking along in a Forth Of July parade.
