Which coolant color for europe i30 1.4 petrol 2011?
« February 25, 2019, 08:36:02 »
Actually, all the oil websites recommend the pink g12 coolant and nowhere the blue one. The dealer says blue.

But is that also the one which I need? Or yellow?

Have you looked in the over flow bottle to see what colour you already have? use the same at the correct mixture percentage :)

The main thing to remember is to not mix different brands/colours, any colour should be suitable if done at the right mixture percentage for your locality.

I've got the yellowish 10 year fluid in mine but I can use other colours if I were to do a complete drain.

Drained the system and completely filled the system with blue coolant with -26, a bs6580 coolant. Not sure if the corrossion and other additives are good for this hyundai system? As all the oil companies recommend pink.
