Most folks just crush them after using like this and throw them in a dumpster.

Good point. We have hi mineral content. IF you're going to mix you should
use a properly labeled container (aka- used antifreeze jug) and distilled
water.

Now we have to use distilled water mixed with antifreeze to fill our radiators? New one on this old man. Been doing it wrong for 60 years.

I have a water cooled motorcycle. The radiator is tiny and EXPENSIVE.
I have to use "non silicate" anti-freeze and so I buy a gallon and mix with
distilled water. (in an empty antifreeze jug) Lime in your water can clog a radiator and distilled water
costs less than a buck a gallon. It's a no brainer.
I keep distilled water for battery top ups too so I have it on hand most times.

Now we know what the big towers are for at the auto manufacturing plants. Distilled water for the vehicle cooling systems.

Man such nonsense, distilled water in a radiator? I've heard some pretty obtuse statements, but that ranks with the top in my book.

And this is going nowhere. I had moved these posts from another thread where they were hijacking it.

It's best to close this thread before it keeps running afoul of one of our principal guidelines here:

'Do not take every opportunity to express your disagreement, incite argument, insult each other, or fan flames. Voice your opinion respectfully and then let it go.'

These guidelines can be found here:
