Think its supposed to be 60% water 40% antifreeze. You can use antifreeze for automobiles, its the same either way and cheaper.

A 50/50 mix of any ethelene gylcol anti freeze will work just fine. Just don't mix OAT antifreeze (Dex a Cool type) with regular glycol types.

Peak, like Prestone, make all types of anti freeze. If it says long life or lifetime formula on the jug, then it's probably an OAT type (usually red, orange or yellow in color). If it just say antifreeze/coolant and is green, then it is common ethylene glycol.

The only difference between Peak green stuff and Arctic Cat green stuff is Arctic Cat makes the profit on the Arctic Cat green stuff. Use any brand you like, ethylene glycol, 50/50 or 60/40. 50/50 will protect down to -34 F. I don't know about you, but if it's that freaking cold out, I'm inside drinking hot cocoa or something!
