What about the preston 50/50 yellow? I haven't put any in yet, It's just I'm having a hard time finding the green around here, I check a few places last night after work, and all they are selling is the Prestone yellow and orange. And I know not to use the orange. It said the yellow is ok on aluminum. But I'd rather not put it in till I know 100% is ok to do so. Any one know?

The yellow is designed to be able to be mixed with all other types of coolant, so if you have a vehicle that has the orange in it like most newer cars and trucks you can intermix it without causing a problem,.

Prestone full strength and mix it yourself. You get twice the antifreeze for the price that way. People who buy pre-mixed are either too dumb to mix it themselves or have more money than brains.

its not bad as long as you flush the system completely clean before you put the dexcool in.
