    Per the owners manual:

    Always use ethylene-glycol antifreeze containing corrosion inhibitors specifically formulated for internal combustion aluminum engines.


    Fill cooling system with BRP PRE-MIXED COOLANT (P/N 219 700 362),or with a water and antifreeze solution (50% distilled water, 50% antifreeze).


    NOTE: Using a blend of 40% antifreeze with 60% demineralized water will improve the cooling efficiency when watercraft is used in particularly hot weather and/or hot water condition.


    To prevent antifreeze deterioration, always use the same brand. Never mix different brands unless cooling system is completely flushed and refilled.

    Massively important. If you mix Dexcool with older green coolant you get jello.
