Which Coolant to use?

I will be replacing a few welch plugs in my EA over the weekend and want to know what coolant to fill the system back up with?
I have the correct filling procedure printed out thanks to a previous post.....

I am currently using Nulon brand myself - certainly worth the extra over the green cordial stuff. :)

I've also been using Nulon for the last couple of years with no problems but thought it was green.

Is it one of those 50/50 mixtures or is it pre-mixed?

The Nulon Long Life i used is recommended at 33%. i.e. one part Nulon to two parts water.

Also, should distilled water be used? I used plain tap water last time but someone said distilled would be better.

That Nulon stuff is great ands lasts for ages. Its even better than that Tectalloy 10 stuff I used to have before. Before the temp gauge went ape she never was past 'M' on the gauage no-matter how far the speedo was venturing. Be sure to mix the Nulon stuff right or you could have all sorts of problems!

I think it is green, but I was referring to the ultra-cheap stuff which looks no different, but is apparently not much more useful than green cordial. :s5

I normally just use Ford R13C.

2 Bottles at $11.00 ea seems to do the job.
