Looking at the corrosion in the aluminum front engine cover reminded me that Jay Leno raves about Evans Coolant. He claims he uses it in his vintage vehicles and has had great experience for decades. It replaces water and is supposed to be non-corrosive and long lasting. Cost is about $40 per gallon, but it never needs to be replaced. Boiling point is about 350F. Do not know about freeze protection. Put it in and forget it. Anyone here have any experience with Evans?

The Evans website reports freeze protection to -40 F, which is also -40 C.

I've never used the product because my old cars are not completely leak free, but the high boiling point is quite appealing. Perhaps in the future.

Evans will not fix a cooling system with problems. It is advertised to prevent corrosion, boil over as well as being a long lasting product. It sounds like a good way to go, once the cooling system is put into good condition.
