The skidoo manul says 60-40....mix it in a bucket then pour into the tank I think.

The supreme High Lord of Snowmobiling is absolutely right.

A different mix, will just adjust your freeze/boil protection level.  It should be listed on the container, but for sleds 60:40 is optimum.

Yes 60:40 is what is often recomended for snowmobiles because it has a lower freezing point.  If you don't have extreme cold, a 50:50 mixture will offer optimum cooling capability.

I believe the correct anti freeze mixture is 1 part Canadian Club Whiskey and 4 parts Coke, add ice to suit. Then your sled will run better than you can believe or so I am told .....

I can't believe you guys would add coke to Crown Royal. A tall glass with lots of ice and 2-4oz of the Crown and sip away. At the very most you should mix it with water.

I've always done the 50:50 mix.  Just put half of the antifreeze in a gallon bottle then fill it up with water.  Then use the regular antifreeze bottle and fill it up with water.

And how does that taste?..........Oh ,sorry, I thought this was the alcholics post. 95% beer 5% clam is the only cure for that whiskey hangover. Why feel like poop in the morning when you can keep it going!

Thats a good question jayjay. I know i use regular automotive antifreeze, I never even thought of snowmobile antifreeze. Is there a difference?
As for the other antifreeze, I don't buy Crown Royal as whiskey doesn't last long in my house and for the price I can almost get two bottles of Golden Wedding or Gibson's.

Antifreeze is antifreeze..it doesn't matter as long as it is safe for aluminum engines.
You're right zert...I only drink Crown Royal if someone else brought it
Otherwise it's Wisers with the odd Wild Turkey...
