Honda Type 2 is what I would use.

On the topic of antifreeze... what do you do with your used stuff. I want to flush my radiator, but I don't feel comfortable just running it down the driveway. :?:

Don't let it do that. It's sweet flavor is enough to attract animals to drink it and just a small amount is enough to kill them. Catch it in a pan and dispose of it properly. I work at a Firestone shop and we take in used coolant if someone brings it in. You can also check with local parts stores, some of them will take used oil and coolant.

here in colorado, most counties and some cities have a household hazmat facility. you must be a resident of the county and they take small quantities of normal house hold hazmat i.e. gasoline, oil, anti-freeze, paint, pecticides, batteries, almost anything you may accumulate around the home. i had a fire dept ladder truck that i drained out all the engine oil, hydraulic oil, and antifreeze that i took there and they accepted all 30 gallons of it. they want each fluid separated and not mixed. call your county and see what they can do...or maybe the state can help. good luck.
