Waterless Coolant?

Anyone Running Waterless Coolant?
Waterless Coolant was mentioned in a Wheeler Dealers show. It's a lifetime coolant, never needs flushing, runs at much less pressure because of a higher boiling point, and doesn't pit and corrode the inside of the engine. It's also non-toxic and claims to improve mileage.

Jay Leno talks about it at:

I heard of this stuff for a long, long time. It is also known as Canton/Mecca Evans Waterless Coolant.

Conton/Mecca use to sell the coolant...

Wow, very interesting... From the web site, it doesn't look like they have a distributor in the States.

The other issue would be if you were to use this product, would it void the warranty?

As far as I know Calloway Turbo cars back in the day used the Evans coolant in their Caloway (TT) Vette. Anyone remember the Sledge Hammer Calloway built? That car used Evans coolant from what I was told back then.

The reason why Calloway was keen in running the Evans coolant was for engine ping suppression. AND they did not have to reduce the CR of a turbo engine. In with Evans race NA engines... they ran really high CR's like 16:1 or so.

http://www.lynxae.co.uk/evans_1002.htm


Then Canton/Mecca in CT ran a Camero in Trans Am racing with the Evans coolant. Canton/Mecca use to sell the stuff. But from what I remember it wasn't cheap. It was also fully bio degradable and edible!

My buddy who was running this coolant in a Calloway Golf was very positive about the stuff... until he blew a small coolant hose near his turbo - dumping coolant onto his HOT turbo. Seems this stuff was fully non flammable until some super hot temps... which turbos run at! He had a small engine fire as the result of it!

He then went back to regular coolant after the engine repairs.

What about water pump lubrication, is it suitable?

- we also use water wetter, I was sceptical but it really does work.

Ha! Saw the same show and thought was cool how he pulled the radiator cap off the TR6 and did not get scalded.
