antifreeze

Post by toanogreen »



I have 4 quarts of genuine OEM Honda antifreeze that has been sitting on my shelf for at least 5 years. Never opened. Is it still good?
Are there other brands as good or better?

It should be still good. I don't know what the shelf life is but I've never seen it go bad in the bottle.

Yes it is still good and has the additive package intended for your Wing. There is no better.
