    Default Peugeot (Citroen) Coolant

    Howdy; a quick one - I priced the Pug coolant from the main dealer today - it's $26.02 for 5 litres and $12.43 for 2 litres. I don't suppose at those prices (about the price of the better of the generic coolants) it's worth using anything else...unless you live a good distance from a dealer, like Alan does!

    FYI

    I got charged $14.85 for 2 litres of Citroen coolant from the same dealer a few months ago. Minor difference in price for what is probably the same stuff just in a different container.

    Troy, are you sure the bottle wasn't branded for both? I'd guess that exchange rates could make the difference.

    Just on this topic,

    Does anyone have any reason for running the genuine stuff over a generic?

    My mechanic uses Castrol in the Mi16 and I have often thought maybe with the Peugeot stuff it might run a bit cooler ?

    Any thoughts ?

    Cheers

    My only reason was that I'd heard that it was very good coolant, so, as it's a similar price to generic good coolants - what the heck!

    The only coolants that may give you better cooling are those that incorporate a wetting agent. There's a Shell one that a local Pug mechanic uses that has this additive.

    But honestly, the good generics are OK too, AFAIK.

    No, it was branded Citroen only.
