Talking ELC Coolant

Newbie here, just wanted to let some of you guys know that your local o'reilly auto parts carries a new coolant called Final Charge. Its a really good Cat EC-1 rated coolant to put in your trucks.

I've seen it at truck stops before, but only 50/50 mix...Which is no good for the flush n' changeover. Do they have concentrate?

Yeah, I know they make full strength concentrate. That is what I did mine with. Bought mine at NAPA! They were sold out of the Zerex ELC (17.99) the weekend I did my flush so I bought the Final Charge(23.99).

It comes in either the 50/50 pre-mix or full concentrate which is what I used. Oreilly's can order either they had me 4 gallons in the same day.
