By jove, I think you've got it!

Precisely my point. Water *IS* the best coolant. Most owners, unless they do it themselves with complete coolant removal, have much more than 50/50 mixture. Hey, I thought at one time that "lots" of anti-freeze was better!

Per WW, you need about 20% of anti-freeze to prevent some 'freezing' due to your A/C but with that 80/20% mixture and a 12 oz of WW, you gain the *BEST* of both worlds; water's cooling properties and WW's wetting properties. All this for what? To preserve more of your horsepower due to less engine heat.
