Hi,

Found some BLUECOL from last July 09 what i used in my 06 Astra, You think i could use that?. It is the same color.

Thank you for your replies.

This stuff?? [url="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bluecol-5-year-Antifreeze-1L/dp/B00499DFG4/ref=sr_1_5?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1324051558&sr=1-5"]Bluecol[/url]

Should be fine. I know some say not to mix anti freeze but its so inpractical if just needs a top up. As long as its OATS and the same colour it "should" be fine

EDIT - actually not sure what the shelve life is like on these things - personally i would pop into a local car parts place and pick up a new bottle to top up with.

Just check the rating and review it in the book, it should be given sort of a generic grade number (for example oil may be 5w40, you should have similar grade in your Focus)

Thank you Guys for your replies. Think the best thing i could do is like you have said and go into a shop, that way i will get the right one.
