i then pass the mixture through a coffee filter when i have finished whatever work i needed to drain it for.
before refilling the system.

coolant is still shocking pink so i think its ok and only about a year old.

too many broken head stud horror stories for me not to use g13

I think I got 20L of concentrated g13 on sale for about £30, still using it, just add distilled water on a 50/50 mix.. or that's the plan anyway.
