Anyone Use Fleet Charge Coolant

Anybody used fleet charge coolant before? Thinking about letting a local service center that works on diesels do my flush and he says they use this stuff. Didn't know if it was EC 1 rated? Info from the website below - Thanks

6. Is Fleet Charge an "extended life" coolant?
The term "long life" usually is associated with coolants that contain carboxylic acid inhibitors. Therefore, we have described Fleet Charge as a Fill-For-Life technology.

7. What is meant by the term Fill-For-Life technology?
The Fill-for-Life alternative provides for easy, low cost monitoring of the coolant inhibitor and freeze protection levels. Fill-For-Life is an extended service maintenance program developed by Fleet Charge and Penray researchers. It is very simple. Users simply install a Penray Need-Release filter on an engine coolant system (up to 30 gallons). Every 18 months the filter is replaced. This practice eliminates scheduled coolant changes.

Old thread but I have the same question. Oriellys carries this coolant and I was wondering if it was safe for the 6.0. Thanks

No, it is not a Cat EC-1 rated ELC coolant. This is made clear by in 7. where it states it uses a Need-Release filter. The Cat EC-1 spec does not require the use of SCA/DCA additives.

I'm being lazy, but how many gallons would one need to do a complete flush? I believe it is 4 but was not sure.
Thanks,
Bri

I used 1/2 gallon Restore, 1/2 gallon Restore+, 48 gallons Distilled water, New Ford t/stat, 1/4 tank of fuel, 3 1/2 gallons of Delo ELC coolant.
Took 12.5hrs to do the flush but it is clean.

Were you having eoc/ect delta issues? And did the thorough flushing you performed help any if you had any eoc/ect delta issues?

Thanks!
