Don't know how much better that Mag Chloride is really. Better for the environment and cheaper but after 3 full brake jobs in as many years and all the fins powdered off out of my AC condenser I sure doubt the "better" claim.
My car was dripping yellow in the snow last year after a drive in the liquid "ice preventer" they use here. And now after a long drive on Christmas day in the snow/slush/salt and no time to go wash it, it is now sitting covered with the stuff in the parking lot at work, that's about 100 feet from the ocean. Good thing it does have an aluminium top, will only rust from the doors down or.....the bottom up. Mind you the Shithawks are pretty good at getting to the paint on the roof.
