the fleet manager said that one is okay without adding anything. for heavy duty or industrial applications, they said you'd need SCA, but for our "light truck" it is not needed.
The fleet manager was right, but for the wrong reason
even our "light trucks" need the SCA's but it's already in the Shellzone so it's still the right stuff
Shellzone® Antifreeze is specially formulated to meet the stringent aluminum corrosion protection requirements of today’s automotive engines. Because of its low concentration of silicate, it also complies with Cummins and other heavy-duty diesel engine manufacturer’s silicate requirements. This product is also suitable for use in industrial internal combustion engines where an antifreeze/coolant is required to provide protection against freezing, boil over, and corrosion.

So what your saying it doesn't readily mix with well water? lol
Water is not just water.
Depends also what your location adds to it.
At the shop--All gets the garden hose.
People will overpay to drink bottled water but
they wont do it for their cooling system.
No tap,well ect water for me.
Have seen what it does.
