Waterless Evans Coolant - Your thoughts?

Hi Guys

I am thinking of trying some waterless Evans Coolant. Has anyone tried a waterless coolant in their 7.3 PSD.
Due to the higher boiling point, I have read that they are a 0 pressure system, therefore less chance of blowing radiator hoses, etc.

Your thoughts and opinions would be appreciated.

Thanks

I asked the same question not long ago on this forum. Has pros and cons but I think I will use Evans the next time I do a coolant flush.

Doesnt meet EC1 standards, not for high compression diesel motors.. get a CAT EC1 rated coolant, worth every dime, keeps your motor happy.

Do people have overheating problems? Just don't see a need for using something like this...

x2, as long are you're not an E99 stroker you're best bet is some CAT coolant. I think the problem with the Evan's is the monumental task of clearing 100% of the water out of the cooling system, not something that's easy to do IMO.

Can you elaborate on CAT coolant?
Do you mean CAT as in Caterpillar brand or is this a rating of some kind?
What is EC1?

I am in Australia, so we might have different standards.

Thanks

The issue is not really the water, it is making sure all the glycol based coolant is removed. Since Evans is used in a non-pressurized cooling system water is eventually worked out of the cooling system once it is hot. As for Evans not being used in "high compression diesel engines" is not correct at all as there are commercial trucking companies that use it. Also, at the plant where I work, your V-16 diesel generator uses Evans and you can't get a more abused engine then that thing!!!
