Yeah I never understood why the guys dont just add some bitter to it to discourge dogs from drinking it. Seems like an easy fix.

Get the -50F (or lower) stuff. I've seen the regular pink stuff harden at below 0

Our coldest winters get to -10 but the other winter we had a week around -25-28 and I can personally tell you that's too freakin cold to run out and check to see if the motors are freezing.

I too have seen it get a bit slushy, never ever saw it freeze, but thats why on my old 454 I would re-drain the risers and block. On the 496, I run 3-4 gallons through it and then pump it all back out, leave it as dry as possible.

Ther's about 80 million gallons of antifreeze used per year in NEW cars & trucks. That would cost ALOT.

I winterize my boat just like I used to do with my PWC.
WFO on the trailer in the driveway. Works great!
