Anyone have an idea where I can snag a bottle of Engine Ice in Orlando? Possibly Winter Parkish area. Called a few places, they didn't have it. Figured I'd try here instead of making 30 phone calls.

Unless.. you have another coolant I should use. Most of my searching points to people using Engine Ice.

Thought it also worth mentioning the 'bike guy' at Advanced Auto said I shouldn't use any coolant that has any water premixed with it because it will rust out the aluminum radiator. Though.. aluminum doesn't rust?

Thanks.

Just go get a bottle of the regular Prestone 50/50 antifreeze from your local store. Works just fine. Been using it for years after I got tired of paying the crazy Engine Ice prices.

I have some... but about 1.5 hrs north of ya. It sucks.
Also dont take ANY advice from auto parts stores employees...EVER!
Regular glycol is fine as most engines are aluminum blocks and cooling systems these days.
