2l x3 = 6l for £4.99
not bad, but you can normally get the watered down stuff (5l) for £4 quid

watered down : £1 = 1.25l
concentrated : £1 = 833ml

Brought some for my car not long back (As i cheaped out when having rad changed i got just water rather than pay the £40 they were quoting for anti-freeze) from asda £4 for the 5l one, in asda in halesowen (down stairs, next to the £1 tat isle)

Also halfords normally have them in 5l containers outside the store for roughly this price (give or take 50p)

Couldnt spot it in Halfords, cheapest there for 5l was £17.99.
But will take a look next time in Asda, thanks

Be careful with the anti-freeze you pick and make sure it's right for your car. They are not all the same and the wrong stuff can damage your engine or engine parts.

Also be careful with animals around, apparently dogs and cats love the stuff..... but it can kill them!

Exactly very good advice.

Some are blue, red...etc. Mixing them up can do the opposite effect and actually block your cooling system up resulting in your engine getting hot in certain areas and possible head warping. Rare, but it can happen.

I dont think the already diluted anti-freeze is at a ratio of 3:1 though..?

Personally I prefer the concentrate, normally make it 1:1 to deal with the scottish winter, which doesn't seem to want to make an appearance this year!!

Thanks OP I usually watch for the Lidl offer 5 litres of concentrate for about a fiver and its good stuff.

​I haven't seen any screenwash in lidl this year. Wonder if they've stopped it?
