Using distilled water with antifreeze is CORRECT! The WORST coolant you could use is pure distilled water, and this is probably where the "no disitlled water" myth comes from.

By using distilled water with antifreeze you minimize the dissolved mineral content that is added to the cooling system.

As long as the coolant doesn't reach the MB recommended 3-year expiration and the antifreeze is either MB brand, Zerex G-05, or Dexcool, it's okay to leave it in during storage.
