Is the Subaru Life Long Coolant better than regular coolants, can it be mixed with regular coolant. Does it have the conditioner added to it.

Subaru Life Long Coolant

Do you mean the new (2008-and up) "Super" Blue long life coolant? Or the regular stuff?
I believe as long as it's a silicate free coolant it should pretty much be ok. Some interesting reading here, too bad the endwrench article isn't around anymore..

Yea that CL ad is for the regular 'green type' coolant. I believe the blue extended drain stuff has the words 'super' on the bottle.
I wonder if the SOA stuff is pre-mixed 50/50? If it isn't that's probably a good price.
IMO, changing the coolant on schedule is more important than the brand name. I've used the regular prestone stuff, and one of the peak types in the past.

The dye is certainly different but I don't think its worth extra money. For $10 you can't go wrong. Its a real pretty color of green compared to a traditional gallon of Prestone or other house brand antifreeze. That jug is the Full Strength stuff so you need to mix it with distilled water to use it.

Thanks guys, I'm always looking for a bargain on stuff I like to keep on hand.
