Where did G13 strain come from?
G-13 is believed to have originated in a research facility in Mississippi in the 60s or 70s, where, with the help from the University of Mississippi, pure Afghani Indica clones were used to attempt the creation of a super Indica strain.
Can I use G12 ++ instead of G13?
G13 is compatible with the G12++.
Can I use G40 coolant instead of G13?
Glysantin G40 (concentrate), Zerex/Valvoline G40 (premixed 50:50), Pentosin Pentofrost E (concentrate) are pinkish/purplish and are suitable replacements for G12 PluPlus and G13 and are also compatible with Glysantin G30.
Can I mix G12 ++ with G13?
They are fine together. But if you are just topping up, you can always just use distilled water so you don’t mix and save the G13 for when you switch out coolant next.
Can I use G12+ instead of G12?
G12+ is purple. It’s new and it can be mixed in to pink coolant systems, it replaces G12 according to VW. In all other respects it is like G12.
Is G12 and G12+ the same?
However G12++ and G13 Have the Same corrosion inhibitors, the only difference is that G12++ is 100% Ethyene Glycol, G13 is 80% Ethylene Glycol and 20% Glycerin. G12+ and G12++ are perfectly compatible too, G12+ is an OAT and G12++ is a HOAT With Silicates but they are compatible.
Is Prestone antifreeze G12?
Registered. The new prestone you can buy at autozone is 100% compatible with G11 or G12.
What is G12 antifreeze?
Antifreeze G12, G12 + and G12 ++ G12 antifreeze is red or pink. It no longer contains silicates; it is based on carboxylate compounds and ethylene glycol. The average service life of such a coolant is 4-5 years. Antifreeze G12 is used in high-speed engines with an operating temperature of 90-110 degrees.

Can you put regular antifreeze in an Audi?

Can I put water in my coolant?
Your car’s cooling system needs coolant to keep it from overheating. Although water can be added to the radiator for this purpose, it’s preferable to add a mixture of coolant and water because plain water can boil before the proper coolant will boil, causing your engine to overheat [source: pontiac].
What happens if I put wrong coolant in car?
Mixing different engine coolants or using the wrong coolant can impair the performance of the special additive packages; this can result in increased corrosion to the radiator. Using the wrong engine coolant can gradually lead to corrosion and damage to the water pump, radiator, radiator hoses and cylinder gasket.
What happens if you don’t use Dexcool?
They react and will gel up. So if you don’t want to use dex-cool, the system needs to be drained and thoroughly flushed. Then it should be ok to use regular anti freeze. VW however warns against using anything other than their coolant, saying it can erode gaskets etc.
Can I use green antifreeze instead of orange?
Can I mix green coolant with orange coolant? This is one of those questions usually asked after the fact, and usually engine damage has already occurred. The green and orange coolants do not mix. When mixed together they form a gel-like substance that stops coolant flow, and consequently, the engine overheats.
Is it OK to use universal antifreeze?
There are advantages to using only one type of coolant, both for newer and for classic cars. Classic car owners traditionally use inorganic acid coolants, the ones that are ethylene-glycol-based and bright green in color. But using an OAT-based universal coolant will be fine in your classic car.
What color is universal antifreeze?
Does GM still use DexCool?
GM still uses Dex-Cool coolant and there is no longer a problem with gasket coolant interaction. So contrary to the ranting, DexCool IS the recommended coolant for GM engine.
Can I use Prestone antifreeze in my Honda?
Always use Honda All Season Antifreeze/Coolant Type 2 [MSDS]. This coolant is pre-mixed with 50 percent antifreeze and 50 percent water. Prestone® Extended Life Antifreeze/Coolant is compatible with ANY antifreeze/ coolant – regardless of color – for use in ALL makes and models of cars and light duty trucks.
