Evans waterless coolant

Is anyone using this? If so, in what? Share your experiences, good or bad, please. I know it is not cheap, but I’m thinking I may use it in my 54. They advertise it as a lifetime coolant, no electrolysis with aluminum parts, high boiling point, with 4-5 PSI cap…. I’d love to hear any first hand experiences.


  • Oh boy. This is like the oil and zinc topic. I've never used it but seen many, many threads on it. I can't say I'm convinced one way or the other.
    What problem are you trying to address? The corrosion factor or the heat transfer factor? 
  • I don't have any problems yet. This is a fresh build (my 54 coupe with the Jag front end, and big block Ford engine that is documented here). I will be using an aluminum radiator, and intake, and I guess I'm most concerned about electrolysis issues. With everything being new, or rebuilt, I don't foresee any issues with overheating. I'm exploring options, to try and make a somewhat educated decision when the time comes.

    Jay Leno uses it, search for his show on the Evans, it will convince you.
  • I think it makes more sense for a new build than a replacement in an old system. What I found didn't convince me there was significant advantage in an old system that had already run conventional EG for years.

    Another benefit besides corrosion protection, is that Evans lasts for years and  years. Maybe a lifetime?

    I have looked into that in the past. I found this company and am very happy with their products.  
    They also have info in their newsletters regarding Evans...

    Newsletters they address water and Evans are Fall 2018 and 2021.
  • Thanks jjbubaboy. I'm convinced.
