Water-based coolants have been the standard since the beginning of the car industry. But those traditional coolants have limitations that car people have simply learned to accept. Coolant turns acidic over time, so we swap it often to eliminate electrolysis from eating our engine’s metals from the inside out. We replace plugged heater cores and radiators, full of scale and other deposits left by water. And we still deal with boil-overs on hot days and the high pressure needed to boost water’s boiling point, which can blow hoses and gaskets.
Evans Waterless Coolant eliminates all of these problems by completely eliminating water from the equation. EWC has a higher boiling point than water by more than 100 degrees, so there’s no need for high pressure in the system to keep temps in check and no risk of boil-overs. It significantly reduces oxidation and electrolysis, and does not build up scale inside heater cores and radiators. Best of all, it is a one-time swap that’ll last as long as you own your car.
The only maintenance? Check your water content once a year. At about $340 total (including three gallons of coolant, Prep, and tools/equipment), this isn’t cheap, but considering the time, effort and expense you’ll save by not needing to swap coolant, rod out radiators, or deal with boil-overs anymore, it’s money well spent.

Swapping over is simple, but there are some important steps to follow. We took my ’72 Chevy K10 to World of Speed’s shop in Wilsonville, OR, to show you how to do it.
