    Is the 50% antifreeze specified in Volvo coolant necessary in hot
    climate? Here in Oz I find it hard to get anything approaching this
    ratio of 50/50 antifreeze and water. There is no type C either. Is
    33/67 ok? Also what's the difference between type A, B and C? If I
    were to mix my own is something else beside Ethylene Glycol and water
    necessary?

    Thanks,
    By coolant do you mean Ethylene Glycol? What kind of shop do you think
    sell this stuff? And I have to look for phosphate free Ethylene Glycol
    and phosphate free water?
