FleetCharge Coolant

So I just picked up a 06 F250 and the PO deleted the EGR, replaced the oil cooler, and flushed the coolant system and said replaced with ELC. I am trying to figure out what was put in it. He says Fleet from Oreillys, which I am assuming, FleetCharge, and after some research, it seems that it is an SCA, not EC-1 approved. It is purple in color. Can anyone help me with this by verifying if I do actually have an SCA or not? He had all the work done by a Ford mechanic so I would assume the appropriate ELC was filled but I am not 100%.

Fleetcharge is an SCA coolant that contains silicates just like the Ford G-05 coolant. These coolants were designed before egr systems were required on diesels. It is not a Cat EC-1 rated coolant which is what you want in your truck. How long ago was this put in? I would consider it with the same caution I would the Ford G-05. flush and change at 1 year or 30k miles which ever come sooner. Also do monthly checks for proper SCA levels and pH.

Ok, thanks a lot, thats what I thought. I have not found out if this is whats in it for sure yet. The PO had the EGR deleted, oil cooler replaced, and coolant flushed this year, January. So worse case, if it is a silicate base, i will flush it again myself and refill with CAT EC-1.
