RELIEF FOR RADIATORS

The summer in the UK might be short but the hot weather can certainly do some damage to your vehicle’s engine if you don’t keep your cooling system in good shape.

Fortunately, the solution is simple. Just add a bottle of DEI Radiator Relief™ to your coolant and your vehicle’s operating temperature will be reduced by up to 30°f. (16.66° c), the maker’s claim.

DEI reckons that Engine wear will be minimised, the temperature gauge needle will stay away from the red section when sitting in traffic jams and you won’t be bothered by an overheating radiator ruining your day out.
