Engine Ice fixed the overheating problem

I switched to engine ice coolant a few days ago and i don't have any more problems with overheating. It's pretty amazing the temperature dropped 10 C degrees while riding and doesn't go past 103 C degrees during heavy bumper to bumper traffic. And today was a really hot day in new york.

OK, off to buy some. Having read the manual cover to cover, cannot find the volume required. How much do you need?

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know. Bottles are 2 quarts, or 1.89 liters.

I'm using distiled water with a bit of coolant (10 to 15% approx.) and the result is about the same as with engine ice...

You need to use a little more than one bottle of engine ice.
