zerex or final charge?

I will be replacing my oil cooler and water pump here shortly and figured why not finnaly get around to swaping out the green crap for the elc-1 rated stuff. I wanted to get the rotella elc, but don't have anything local. Just wanted to see if you guys think either one of these options are better than the other and what your thoughts are on it. thanks

One is 25 a bottle for concentrate while the other is 14, not sure the 14 is concentrate though, gonna have to check on that. These are the only ones that I have found locally.

Thanks, I just thought it was off because the 50/50 mix is only 2 dollars cheaper. Do you have an opinion on one over the other, zerex or final charge?

i think zerex is fine.
i bought 4 gallons of fleet charge from tractor supply hardware.
then just picked up 4 gallons of distilled water and good to go.
i think i spent about 74 bucks total for everything.

I use Zerex in my 6.0 and I haven't had any issues with it.
