I see that the antifreeze in a Smart Car is a blue color, is that all you can use in them or not. I am in the process of getting an engine swap done in mine and was wondering about the antifreeze if I had to get the Blue stuff or not. Thanks Munster

I have this in mine :)
How's the Evans cool working out for you? Do you monitor engine temps? I've been contemplating switching my vehicles to it. Specifically my BMW, which runs hot in the summertime down here, during 118° outdoor temperatures.

From my understanding as it won't lower the temperature, but will keep the pressure off the system. Has this been your experience?

The Evans is working great !! We made a trip through the Mojave desert 3 years ago on our way to Northern California and my temp never went over 200 :)

Correct, 0 pressure baby !!

I've actually popped the top off the overflow tank with a hot system....only a slight pop... no spills.

Anticorrosion/Antifreeze meeting specification MB 325.0. You need to mix the coolant and anti freeze together. If mixed separate. Can cause engine damage. The coolant system, need to bleed. After refreshing. Check page 223 owners manual.

Good Luck.
