Green coolants lack the cavitation protection that you need.... aside from whatever else.

93k, green 50/50 from Circle K auto parts coolant, ECT/EOT delta 10~15 degrees, no issues. Although I did just buy a Sinster filter and plan on flushing and getting some stuff from the Speedco shop (they service 18 wheelers).
