ONLY £1.97 IF YOUR QUIDCO TRACKS WHEN ORDERED TO PICK UP (WHICH YOU ARE AS WELL DOING ANYWAY TO ENSURE THEY HAVE STOCK)

* Easy to use
* The number of floating balls indicates the protection level

ADDED LATER.....

This works by telling you the amount of antifreeze protection you have in your coolant. So if you have enough already - then there is no need to replace it.

Slightly unrelated to what this post is all about but just though I'd mention that if you do need to get your coolant changed and you have a german car i.e. Audi or VW that uses the pink antifreeze avoid taking to a Natiowide garage! They dont flush the system properly so when they repace it with their cheap coolant the remains of the old stuff are incompatable with theirs and can screw up the system!

There are numerous posts about this, in addition to previous experience - so be warned!

Why do you say that??

£1.99 to safeguard your car from freezing is no joke.

Thanks for the heads up just recently got an octavia estate and noticed it had pink antifreeze so i take it you can buy this stuff and top it up yourself

I always top my own anti-freeze up & never use water so I can't see the need for this.

Just buy Halfords antifreeze instead and plop it in,after draining some.

Anti Freeze doesn't have the same cooling properties of water, in the end you'll have 100% anti freeze in ya car and it won't be able to handle the high temps and go BANG!

Well if you want to do it yourself I'd advise getting/borrowing a haynes manual to find out how to flush it etc. If your car used the pink anti-freeze then halfords advanced is perfect and should be used 50/50 with Deionised water or more concentrated if necessary. The haynes manual tells you what you'll need for your car anyway.

Alternately I'd take it to your dealer or specialist and getting them to do it. It shouldn't been too expensive and it only needs to be done every few years. You might even be able to get it included when you get your car serviced if it's a major one.

Many years ago I ran a car on 100% anti freeze. Didn't go bang but yeah, the pipes did explode when it overheated :lol:
