Hi all
We have a MY2017 Evoque, diesel auto and recently had the red coolant light appear on the dash.
Question is which coolant should i use to top up. I have got a bottle of Comma Super Longlife Red and was wondering whether I could use that or do I need to go and buy something else?

thanks

Really depends on whats already in there.. hopefully this helps


If Prestone (states on the bottle that its guaranteed to fit all) is the answer its £3 on special in Tesco, £3.99 in Aldi

As long as it’s OAT (organic acid technology) it will be fine although if you only need a litre or so to bring it up to level, just tap water will be fine. Get the strength checked at your next service.

No. Don't use tap water. If you have to use water, make sure its distilled water (Like you hopefully use in your iron). If you use tap water you increase chances of furring up your coolant passages (OOoooer missus)

Tap water is fine to use here. Depends where you live though I suppose.
