    You mean Water Wetter? Pretty good at reducing temps, IIRC increases the surface tension of the water (similar to what soap does) cant remember exactly how this helps cooling though.

    Pretty pointless in a car in the UK though unless your running silly power and do a lot of track work (my SRI-T runs around 80c in normal weather, you wouldnt want it lower than that)

    I might have to try some of this. Now I have the FMIC my water temps have gone up, normally running just over 90c now. Used to run mid-low 80's.

    not good. ruins seals and other components of cooling system. not good unless its a rarely used race engine.

    day to day use is pointless

    Its a load of crap IMO, I've tried it and a couple of mates, all it did was make a mess in the cooling system. that was several years ago mind, so maybe they have changed the formula?

    your better off just using
    battery top up water in the cooling system
    get it from halfords in a 5L for £3
    run a 80/20 mix over summer an then just up it to 60/40mix in the Cold
