No I don't and I never have, but it's sat on a trailer on my driveway when not in use.

Whether he does or doesn't, the point that I was making is that all of the commonly used Anti Freeze is Poisonous to the environment and wanted to highlight this. I'd hate to think that anyone reading his original post would go down halfords and pour 4 litres of the stuff straight into River or Sea water without thinking of the consequences.

I think this has now been highlighted enough, I'll trust the judgement of our fellow RIBnet members to be making the right choice for them and the environment from now onwards.

Perhaps it the only way to stop them from freezing this Christmas break

Well I remember several years ago when a Vineyard was found to be using antifreeze to sweeten their Wines

Coolant containing ethylene glycol ............. In some places it is permitted to pour moderate amounts down the toilet,


But not in a boatyard

all engine's should be run up anyway before the season start's on muff's with fresh water from the garden hose . I would certainly NOT pop my rig in the water before firing it up . Obviously this would flush all the coolant out . All boat / marine companies use this system throughout THE uk . have a good new year all .
