    can I use the old engine antifreeze as my WINTERIZATION for raw water system-gctid828228

    can I use the old engine antifreeze (that I just drained and replaced )as my WINTERIZATION fluid for the engine and marine air raw water system ??? can it hurt the rubber impellers ?

      Engine antifreeze is toxic. I wouldn't use it to winterize the raw water cooling. I use the pink stuff with rust inhibitors.

        Some folks might get upset when you start up the engines in the spring. EPA especially.

          Definitely not good for the environment to have it spray out of the back of the boat in the spring and the eco friendly stuff is cheap.

            If you have a Rural King store in your area they have a great buy on RV anti freeze, $2.09 a gallon.
