Anti-freeze is poisonous and can be fatal if swallowed - keep containers sealed and out of the reach of children. If accidental consumption is suspected, seek medical attention immediately.
Prevent anti-freeze coming in contact with the skin or eyes. If this occurs, rinse immediately with plenty of water.
Anti-freeze contains important corrosion inhibitors. The anti-freeze content of the coolant must be maintained at 50% ± 5% all year round (not just in cold conditions). To ensure that the anti-corrosion properties of the coolant are retained, the anti-freeze content should be checked once a year and completely renewed every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) or 24 months, whichever is the sooner. Failure to do so may cause corrosion of the radiator and engine components.
The specific gravity of a 50% anti-freeze solution at 68°F (20°C) is 1.075 and protects against frost down to -33°F (-36°C).
Coolant specification Use ONLY a 50% mix of water and and an approved anti-freeze, see ‘LUBRICANTS AND FLUIDS’, page 239.
In an emergency - and only if no approved anti-freeze is available - top-up the cooling system with clean water, but be aware of the resultant reduction in frost protection. DO NOT top-up or refill with conventional anti-freeze formulations. If in doubt consult a Land Rover retailer.
