What is the percentage of Distilled Water
vs Water Wetter ?

##  Ok, below url is the pdf tech document


##  I use a full  12 oz in my mustang eng rad..along with the usual 50-50 mix of distilled water + water wetter. 
I use 6 oz in my mustang  supercharger  intercooler + pump + heat exchanger loop.... along with a 50-50 mix
of distilled water and water wetter.   The supercharger loop is only aprx 2 US gallons. 

##  If no glycol used, and instead 100 %  distilled water used, then u gotta use  a lot more watter wetter.
They list the proper mix ratios.  Local stores carry redline water wetter by the pallet load, like hundreds
of containers.    Everybody and their dog makes their own version.   I would avoid all of the other versions.
Royal Purples version is called....  purple ice.  Sorta works..but it fails the specs for corrosion..and leaves a 
brown ring around the de-gas bottles and everything else it comes into contact with. 

##  Most water cooled supercharger setups like oem stuff from ford racing will specify redlines water wetter
in their install manual.
