    Geez
    what luck-just AMAZON ORDERED
    Toyota SLLC2 COOLANT for 2006 Prius
    Ebay seems to be telling me that it is the WRONG COOLANT?
    2006 uses different coolant than 2004 2007 2008?
    Maybe I can stop the order if I find out it is the wrong stuff
    SLLC2 is what I ordered-coolant for radiator reservoir
    Help

    PS RE-RE-CHECKED- SUPER LONG LIFE COOLANT 2 seems to be the correct coolant-despite ebay sellers indicating otherwise

    Yes Super long life is the correct coolant. The old variant was just Long Life and looks more Red.

    Also the coolant and distilled water are pre mixed. Don't add any more water just use the coolant to changed the system.

    Slight wrinkle
    The battery-dead battery also-will arrive today-coolant will arrive tomorrow.
    I can
    1)-wait until Thursday evening-when coolant arrives-to put it back in service
    2)Go spend $35 and 12 98 suburban miles to buy a gallon locally-in service today
    3) or put absolutely a minimum amount of distilled water in reservoir-use it one day-fill completely with SLLC2

    Th "rub" is 500cc of water means I would have 250cc more water in the solution
    it would be 2750 coolant 3250 water-46% instead of 50%-
    Now maybe 500cc would be too little-hell it might be 1500cc low?

    I have read that getting air in the coolant system-is a problem-if it gets too low-suppose that could happen??
    Yeah I shouldn't cheap out-but...short of $$
    What do you think?
