Balls just written a massive reply and lost it.


Basically the comma stuff will be ok, i had it in mine for three years with no problems,

make sure you flush the old stuff out in case it's had a different type in, the two will react and turn to jelly 😲 just take off the bottom rad hose and pop a hose pipe in the radiator and header tank and run it for a while,


I think it's about 5L you'll need I just did a 50/50 mix concentrate & de ionised water
