Coolant Type?

My uncle needs to change the coolant in his 94' IDI turbo diesel. He bought this diesel coolant at walmart called Final Charge Global. Is this stuff OK to put in his truck? Also would it be OK to put in my 99.5? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Is it green? Any green coolant is fine. Just make sure that if it says '50/50' or 'pre-mixed', don't cut it with any water & if it's straight-up anti-freeze, try to get as close to a 50/50 as you can.

Just had to change the water pump on my 90 IDI, she currently has 316,000 on the clock. I used the Wallmart brand antifreeze, it took 6 gals total to fill. I also went to the local ford dealer & bought 2 bottles of their diesel antifreeze additive, not sure what is different about the Ford additive but after reading & talking to a few diesel mechanics all indicated the diesel motor needs the additive, so in it went.
