Hi,

I have a Focus 08 TDCI and was wondering which Antifreeze to use. I am just going to top up my levels.

Have something to contribute?

This stuff?? Bluecol

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.
