Mobil Cat EC-1 coolant

I have an uncle that works for Cat so i asked if he could get me come ELC coolant. The stuff he brought me is 50/50 and only got 4 gallons of it since i thought it would be pure. Should i get enough to fill the whole system since its already diluted? and is the the correct stuff i should be using?

This is a link to what i got ExxonMobil Introduces New Mobil Delvac Extended Life Coolant/Anti-Freeze | Business Wire

Also i picked up some restore from my cummins dealer but they didnt carry the restore + guess ill have to find some place online for that.

Thanks

they can order the restore + if they carry restore. You probably just got a lazy parts person.

And you need concentrated coolant not 50/50.

you realize half the money you spend on 50/50 mix is for water right? you can get a whole gallon of distilled for less than a dollar.

I surely do realize that, if i actually paid for it i would have made sure i was getting concentrated. And i picked up plenty of distilled water for $.68 cents a gallon today. Ill pick up 2 gallons of concentrate soon and use the 4 gallons of 50/50 then top off the rest with distilled water.

The idea is that you will have a lot of water left in the system after the flush and you refill with concentrate that way your mix is correct when your done.

If he works at Cat, then have him return it and get the concentrate. I still have an employee discount at Cat, so I just went to the local parts counter and asked for the concentrate. His parts dept. should have it
