Anyone Ever use EVANS NPG+ coolant

I'm getting ready to flush my coolant system and can't decide on using an ELC or try the Evans NPG+. I like the idea of the no pressure coolant system (very little chance of a hose blow out). But, just wanted to hear from others using the Evans (or ELC). I will be install a coolant by-pass filter from dieselsite.
Thanks in advance for all contructive comments.

I haven't seen anything about that. I know some folks have had good luck with it and some not in the racing world. Seems like it might be a good alternative to ELC, but we know the ELC works.

i tried it like 2 years ago. bought a extra degas bottle cap and drilled a small hole in it to vent pressure off. i drained it out after about a year. i had a problem with my heater blowing cold when stopped at a light or idleing. i blamed this on the thicker viscosity of the evans. i changed back to the stock stuff and havent had a problem since.
