Default Water wetter?

Can I use water wetter in my radiator instead of regular antifreeze? I mean in my daily driver.

yes. just be advised that you will loose all anti-corrosive properties of no coolant. water wetter does work too. dropped my buds SBC powered 911 20 degrees!!! but usually not that much of a diff. unless its a racetrack no-no to run coolant, i dont see a real gain to go without....

No,water wetter is an additive,it is not meant to replace the ethylene glycol/water antifreeze mix,but rather to aid in reducing the average temperature of the cooling system.If you remove the antifreeze you will not have protection from freeze-up,cavitation and lubricity in the cooling system.
