"silicate free antifreeze"

Is there a list of the different brands of 50/50 antifreeze that are ok to use in our x"s other than the Honda coolant? I've found the list on spark plugs and the oil filters but not the coolant. Thanks

coolant

I have checked the labels and haven't found any that say one way or the other! There are several that say there safe for all vehicles and aliminum engines but not any that specify say "silicate free"

Are you looking at generics or something? Because every name brand I've seen says it's silicate free if it is.

I use the Prestone Extended Life. Phosphate/silicate free. I then buy a jug of distilled water and mix 50/50. I have seen the "pre-mixed" on the shelf as well, you pay a premium for that 1/2 gallon of distilled water.
