Anyone use Redline Water Wetter Additive ?

Post#1 » Sat Jul 25, 2009 7:45 am

In the interest of always trying to keep my 280GE running at no
more than mid range temperature, I was intrigued by this
product but know nothing about its benefits......if any.
Would like to know if other 'G' owners found it to help the engine
run cooler during heat stress driving conditions?

I use it. I want to have the maximum possible cooling capability in the summer and it is supposed to give an edge. It doesn't cost that much and if there is even a small benefit it is worth it for me. Their other products are outstanding. This one is hard to do a comparison with without some scientific protocol and I really don't have time for that.

I assume the 12 oz bottle should be used in its entirety
and will give it a try since there doesn't seem to be
a 'damaging' down side to using it.

In my experience with the 280GE..

I see ZERO change in temps... Nada, Zip-O, Nothing..

But as you say, "It probably won't hurt"...

I've got some friends who run this stuff in their stock cars and have been told that it only really works if you are running straight water and is not noticeable if added to antifreeze. They did say that it has helped with warping of the heads due to reducing hot spots around the cylinder heads also ( their theory as less head gasket problems using it).
