Is anyone of you out there using the Evans waterless coolant in your engines, whether auto or aircraft?
I'm considering making the switch while I've got my Soob powered Fox5 down for annual, but thought I'd ask if there's any personal experience any of you might share.
Also, any sources and/or prices would be appreciated.
Tnx,
Deke

I have it in both my Kitfox 912 and the EA81 in my
Nieuport. I like it.

In my engines it appears to cool pretty much as well
as regular EG. I used to run 100% EG in the Kitfox
to avoid boiling after shutdown and one has to be
concerned with gelling. Not with Evans. That and
the lifetime nature of Evan's alone are well worth
the few extra bucks to me. Plus, the higher boiling
temperature is nice down here in TX were running at
95 to 100+ OAT a lot of the year is normal.

Ted

Dee,
Which product is best for us flyers? NPG, NPG+, or
NPG-R?
I might switch to this in Florida with the heat the
turbo puts out.

Yes good stuff and eliminated the need for a thermostat. You will need
double the standard NSI over flow due to greater expansion. Be sure to
use the flush first. Get a low pressure cap as well.

go mail order?

That's the sort of info I was looking for. Any idea where I can find a
suitable overflow bottle? What flush do I need? The cap should be
available at NAPA.

Here's a link to the dealers. I ordered direct from
Evans as you only need a gallon of flush (IF you
already have EG in the system) and a gallon of
coolant. BTW, if you don't use up the whole gallon
of flush you can actually use it to add to the
coolant to top it off later. It's fully compatable
per Evans.

Regards,

Ted

Rick, I don't think you need to change the cap.

Thanks for that comment. I see no reason for the lower pressure cap, and
the Rotax SB doesn't require a lower pressure cap.

Best recommendation is the same formula that is recommended by Rotax. as it
has some ethelene glycol mixed into the propylene base that Evans uses. The
reason it for enhance the heat transfer properties. The info in the Rotax
bulletin and repeated on the Evans web site if I remember correctly. My
memory fails sorry.

Thanks Paul,

When I get back in the US and can get around to it,
I`ll ask Evans too, before ordering. Each product
seems to have some advantages for a turbo soob running
at more than highway cruise power settings. Maybe the
Rotax mix will be best here too.

Great Rick,

This would probably make it so I can live with my
radiator scoop cooling capacity as is and only reduce
it in winter. (I am pushing it for cooling above 85 F
or so now, especially climbing or on a long taxi.)
Then I only only need to add the thermostat bypass to
my oil cooler to keep the temps up when cold.

Been running the coolant around 160 in the cool air
lately, but the oil doesn`t get hot enough then. If I
kept both at 210 F with Evans in it, that should work
well. Then I just have to watch the GB temps, which
seem to follow a little below the case temps.

BTW, what is the freezing point for Evans coolant?
Anyone found that yet?

Yep, If you already have the NSI unit , just get the full size rubber
made. The screw on cap will fit. If not check Summit racing. Evans has
the right flush. It removes any water that might be in the system. NAPP
is where I purchased mine. It wasn't the 3, think it was a 7.
