Has anyone every tried this?

Has anyone ever used a coolant additive? With these 90 degree days and high humidity my car is running hotter (not over heating) and I was looking on Anderson's website and seen this. Says helps the coolant cool up to 20 degrees on average ! For $15 is it worth a try?

If you want to see if a coolant additive helps you out just go to your local box store and pick up a $10 bottle of Water Wetter.

Well it is getting hot as balls out. What tstat do you have in there and is your fan coming on when it should? How old is the radiator? Also who did the white faces? You sure that needle is back on properly?

Honestly that stock gauge is called an "idiot gauge" for a reason. I HIGHLY suggest you get an aftermarket mechanical gauge for water. And oil pressure.
