New to the UK, Evans Waterless Coolants have been in use for nearly two decades in the USA and 7+ years in China. During this time Evans have commissioned many trials to prove their products significantly reduce operating costs and improve engine reliability.
Joe Umstead, an independent trucker, operates a Freightliner fitted with a 12.7 litre series 60 Detroit diesel engine. In 1991, Joe had been having engine cooling problems associated to corrosion inhibitor drop-out. After replacing the radiator he was determined to find a more reliable antifreeze and turned to Evans cooling for help. Tom Light, Evans Chief Engineer, recommended their prototype 4LIFE waterless coolant, which was duly installed along with Hi-Flo Thermostats and Fan-Miser Module. Since conversion the Freightliner has covered more than a million miles without needing to top-up or replace the coolant. Joe has been very impressed with improved engine reliability and reduced maintenance costs, but what really delighted him was the associated fuel saving. The Freightliner mileage log confirms that his fuel bills went down by more than 7% falling the conversion, which in hard-cash equates to £3,750 saving for every 100,000 miles travelled.
