I just changed my coolant to Fleetguard recently and I believe it already has scas. Atleast that is what it says on the jug.

Yea fleet charge is "precharged" with sca but i think you still have to maintain it.

You do, but if you make coolant changes on a timely basis it should not be an issue in practice.

IIRC, fleet charge is good for 100,000 miles, and I would test it at 50,000 miles.
