You could go to a NAPA store and get the green -100 AF,then you could recycle it several times without fear of over dilution.

Are you talking about the antifreeze that you use in a car?

No matter how hard you try to keep moisture out condensation will come into the equation & some water in the lines...... My question is if you blow out the lines & feel that 100% of the water is out then why bother using the pink stuff??????

Personally 2 gallons @ $3.50ea is not worth risking having a line rupture or the toilet valve etc. breaking. I buy new. I make sure there is plenty in the traps & the tanks so no freezing at the waste valve.

Don't do it. Had a bottle unopened in the pole barn this year that was over a year old and it froze up. I'm thinking alcohol base loss effectiveness.

Nope.Its propelene glycol just like the pink stuff but w/o the extra water added.When I was in the marina bussiness we bought it full strength (-200)in 55 gal drums. and blended it with water to get what we wanted.In its refined state it is clear,but they will tint it any color you want at the filling rack,just like diesel.

edit) I still have 2 un opened drums of it,but dont use it because I'm too lazy to bother with pumping it out! A few bucks for the premix RV AF makes it not worth my time anymore.

When exposed to the air, RV antifreeze can grow mold.

I am in the "use once; toss" crowd.
