What's everyone running for Antifreeze/Coolant ? Dexcool or Regular green.
Different reasons for running one or the other ?
Anyone use special water ?

Green stuff. Generally try to get the non-toxic version because I tend to make a bit of a mess pouring it.

I use a 50/50 mix of Prestone "for all vehicles" green stuff.

I have been using prestone 50/50 in every b-body I have owned since I first discovered an issue with Dex-cool back in the late 90s. You can even purchase, or could purchase a green top overflow lid from GM to match your coolant once the car was switched from orange to green.

I've heard that some people still like Dexcool, but I know if you neglect it even a little bit it turns super acidic and starts eating away gaskets and such. Everyone I know runs green stuff (after flushing everything out first)

You guys are too picky. Just dump in a jug of the full strength green stuff from where ever and then keep filling with water until it's all full up. Water is cheaper than antifreeze and as long as the mix is in the generall ballpark of some green stuff to some water it won't freeze. At least that's been my experience. Now the extra jug of water I keep in the trunk are another story entirerly Laughing

Green stuff, you can buy it anywhere.

I have some round green stickers that I put on the cap.
