Re: Rotella ELC Coolant - No not in the diesel
[ QUOTE ]
It may be fine, but 30,000 miles is NOTTHING in the life of a 500,000 mile engine is it? So don't think just because you haven't had problems in 30,000 your fine. It took 80,000-100,000 or more to wear the holes through the cylinder walls from cavitation with standard coolant [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif[/img]
I have done NO research on this coolant so I have no idea and am not choosing either way.
I am saying just because your truck has gone 30,000 doesn't mean a thing.
This is just a general statement and is NOT directed at coolant.

Good God! I should have known better than to get involved in a coolant thread. All I was saying that I have run it for 30,000 problem free miles. Having gone 30,000 miles does mean a thing. It means I have gone 10% of the recommended life of this ELC (before adding any additive) without any issues. That's exactly what it means...no more...no less.
You guys need to relax a bit. Especially when you admit that you have done no research on the topic.
If someone asked about a Mag-Hytec cover or your gauges or your particular brand of ATV rack would you comment or just have no comment because you haven't lived the full expected life cycle of the item yet. That seems silly. If that were the case then what is the mileage that I can comment on a CPS?
