Antifreeze

Is there a special antifreeze that is used in sleds, or can regular automobile antifreeze be used in sleds? I was just curious.

Just use the regular green automotive antifreeze. Just mix it for the correct tepmerature and you should be fine

Don't use the red Dexcool stuff! When it mixes with the regular green stuff it gels! (yikes!)
