At atwoods the pink is $2.99, at walmart I think $3.99. Green is usualy $8-12 a gal. Pink is safer and cheaper and does not have to be "disposed of properly". Blue will evaporate out the alcohol over time and loose its anti freeze effectivness.

Do you "REALLY" have to winterize down in texas-- it would take many hours below 30 degrees to do any damage...

Gotta be a reason. Can someone enlighten me please?
Ethylene Glycol is the "antifreeze agent" used in cars and trucks.
It tastes sweet like sugar water and is a deadly poison.

Used in some areas of the world to control wolves and other dangerous animals.
Illegal here due to "collateral damage" (killing unintended victims like family pets and children), elsewhere a bowl of antifreeze left out overnight is cheap poison.

It is a horrible way to die.

Additionally, FYI while the "pink stuff" will not freeze when used straight, it WILL freeze if diluted. It will also allow bacteria to grow so a thorough sanitization is required when you "de-winterize." in the spring.

Windshield de-icer (the winter stuff) has SOAP in it to dissolve bugs.
Summer stuff is just soapy water with vinegar in it to cut road grime and will freeze just fine.

As I mentioned, personal experience with our cat - it was really, really bad.
