ELC coolant question

Anyone ever used, Final charge global extended life coolant. Cat. ELC is $27.00 a gal. here and we have a huge drum of the final charge at work, so I could get it much cheaper. specs. phosphate -free, silicate- free, nitrite and borate-free, and it say's it meets Cat Ec1 specifications. Thanks for any input, Mike.

Here is a list of ELC's that would work:

• CAT HD ELC
• Fleetrite HD ELC (International's brand)
• Rotella HD ELC
• Prestone HD ELC
• Zerex Extreme HD ELC

There are a few missing from the list, and I still have not asked the boss yet, it is a 150 gallon barrel and one of the mechanics said it was almost 3k, so I may go with the delo chevron ELC, I know I can get it at almost cost thru work by having the operation manager order it for me, I'll find out tuesday when the boss comes back from pismo. Thanks again, Mike.

I use Peak Final Charge Global. My Oreilly carries it in concentrate
I woulda just bought the Final Charge Concentrate and then used the drum to top off with whenever you needed it.
