Ixnay on the green. ELC is red. Zerex makes an ELC. Looks like this. Look for the CAT EC-1 cert.



Texaco and Shell also make an ELC as does Chevron Delo. The Delo is available at Advance auto, Auto Zone, Wally World, and Napa according to the Delo retail finder. The Delo is the best out there.

Yeah get a version of a red ELC. We personally run CAT in our semi's and my f250. Stay away from dexcool.

Delo is the best out right now. 750k mile service life. 1 million miles with an extender at 750k.
