For a tread that ends the discussion....
The problem with new and presumably innovative ideas is that they are only great until they are not. I can think of many such items but one we all know about is asbestos. It was such a ground breaking discovery for construction, until it wasn't and how long did it take for that to be determined? Fire treated lumber is another.
That Evans waterless coolant is like 60 bucks a gallon. I've heard of people running it in motorcycles and atv/utv but I don't know much about it. I'll just stick with dexcool in the yukon it's treated me good so far.
Plus you have to buy their flush to chase all the water-based coolant out of the system, and they want $30 a gallon for that, and it gets dumped!
Holy crap, that's crazy. Never even thought about that kind of stuff like flushing the system and stuff. Definitely to rich for my blood.
I ran Evans in my rear engine dragster a few yrs ago. It had a 572 ci big block chevy. It's cooling system was too small, only 2 gals. I ran Evans to prevent boil overs. When I sold the engine I drained the Evans out and have it in storage. The stuff is too expensive to let go to waste.
A neighbor works for a billionaire that has 40 ole Smithsonian quality warbirds. He runs Evans in the liquid cooled warbirds like his P-51 Mustang etc.
Yessir, it has its place for sure. I just don’t think that includes a GM SUV in most cases. Maybe for somebody like @randeez who’s pushing an ungodly amount of hp and has a modified cooling system. Plus he’s rich af lol.
This discussion, given the title of the thread reminds me of the great Yosemite Sam of Looney Tunes fame.
