that's what I thought as well, but the Evans waterless is a type of coolant not a coolant additive. He clarified that previously.
I believe the Evans product is a propylene glycol derritive.....but it foes not have the specific heat characteristics as ethylene glycol or Dexcool....but its not diluted. Its 2x - 3x more than thd other products. Is it better? It depends on one's viewpoint.....personally.....no thank you...... Just my opinion of course.

I would recommend being careful about adding any coolant additive.. I have seen certain times the additive has some chemicals that interact within the block/head passages loosening up some junk clogging things up. Then U have to pull the radiator, and do a total system flush out..

Just my $0.02...

Been using Water Wetter in my 496" w aluminum radiator for about 2 yrs. 1st yr, everything looked normal. 2nd yr, same. Broke a pushrod a couple weeks ago so I decided it was a good time to pull the engine for some upgrades and when I drained the radiator it was rusty. I was running 50/50 antifreeze w distilled water and 2 bottles of Water Wetter. When it goes back in, no Water Wetter.

also a good idea for added protection to add a sacrificial zinc anode at the drain plug location since we've got dissimilar metals iron and aluminum in the mix here.
