In your Mercedes diesel I would recommend the regular WaterWetter, one
bottle will treat a cooling system from 12 to 20 quarts of capacity. This
has corrosion protection so you can use a reduced antifreeze concentration,
and help lower the coolant temperatures and improve the heat transfer.

The Diesel WaterWetter is used for large commercial diesel cooling systems
that have a separate corrosion package metered into the system.

I would expect the capacity of your cooling system to be more than 1 1/2
gallons. You could use 4 ounces of the Diesel WaterWetter, but I would
recommend reducing the antifreeze to 15% and use the regular (red)

Thank you for your interest in Red Line Oil.
