    Hey guys I was lookin for g12 coolant for my car and the guy in halfords said it is recommended that I use g30 coolant. He stated that the g12 is manufacture guide but not always accurate. Does this really matter?

    Many thanks ryan

    I've always stuck with G12+ from either a dealer or eBay. I wouldn't mix coolants, but that's just me being me.
    G12+ isn't too dear to buy.

    Topping up with water would of been fine if it's only a small amount required. I know your frustration when places close etc. I live in the sticks and frustrates me sometimes!

    It's now called G13, and £10.20 per 1.5l. I got two bottles from the dealers on Tuesday.

    They changed it to meet the new EU green standards (less of the nasty chemicals) G13 can be mixed with G12 & G12++

    Stay away from the halfords rubbish - Last time I checked it was more expensive than G13 from Audi.
    Stick with the G13 - I find two bottles mixed with water fits the bill.
