Is engine ice ok to use in a 2011 990 adv or are there better options?
I would be willing to bet it's ok. I use it in my 2010 and am happy with the results. Did it while doing the valve adjustment and flushed the system real well. Works for me.

Ok thanks for the help!
I run Engine Ice in my 990 as well. Best coolant out there.
I've always used name brand antifreeze with Redline Water Wetter added. Now that I see Engine Ice is rated for temps down to -25f, I'll have to give it a try.
seeing as where talking about Engine Ice, has anyone had I change colour ?
Mine went a purple colour after a few months ??
I'll check and get back. It's been in since Aug last year.
Another vote for Engine Ice. I've used it in everything I've owned except my air cooled jug heads for 10 years. Pre-mix, no guessing, just pour in and go. Added benefit is that it's ethanol based, not glycol and it's easier on aluminum parts (ie. your rad will like it more). It's a bit pricier, but only marginally.
Never had it go purple though... Maybe it's a result of a bit of the green stuff left in on the change over? Could have mixed together and caused it. It's not critical if it did. Important part is that it HAS coolant and the coolant is still doing it's job,
Ok, just checked. It isn't purple but the bluish color that it was from the get go. Perhaps flushing the system better would be in need if it's purple, only a guess.
thank for the feedback, I'll flush it next oil change
hi all, new to this, can i had coolant to the existing one? mine is running a little low. Any coolant that is 50/50? do i had it through the rad cap or through that coolant bottle? do i need to burp it as well?
thanks in advance
I was going to switch to Engine Ice based on all the good reviews, but every bottle I saw on the shelf had sediment on the bottom. Gave me a cold prickly.....
I asked about it here .....and eventually stayed with Honda premix.
