How about plain old Prestone in the yellow bottle? That what 98% of what folks use. Also, I would be leary of silicone hoses since I had alot of trouble with multiple pin hole leaks. I prefer plain old green stripe hose from Fleet Pride.

Amazon.com: Coolerguys Single 120mm fan kit with pre-set thermal controller CG-1201-P: Computers & Accessories
Cooling fan for my entertainment cabinet. The components get very hot & have very little airflow. Hoping this helps, I haven't had time to install this yet.

A third seat belt for the couch. Now all three grandkids can be belted in. Also a clip that keeps the sliding glass closet door closed. Somebody broke the old one.

Yep, Peak Final Charge is what I have been using on others which does NOT contain 2 ethylhexanoate and works fine with silicone hoses.

I've gone through three of those plastic sliding door clips in ten years. Just changed to one of these the other day. A lot easier to use. So far so good.
